Due to heavy rain forecast over the next two days, the Kitsap County Severe Weather Shelters will be activated Thursday and Friday.
Three locations will be open in Port Orchard, Silverdale, and Kingston. Hours of operation will be from 6 p.m. to 7 a.m. except as noted for the Village Green location. Guests will not be able to check into the shelter after 9 p.m. If no guests have checked into a shelter location by 9 p.m., that location will close for the evening.
The locations are:
- Port Orchard United Methodist Church – 725 Kitsap St.
- Silverdale United Methodist Church – 9982 Silverdale Way
- Village Green Community Center – 26159 Dulay Rd. NE, Kingston (open 6:30 p.m. to 6:30 a.m.)
The Severe Weather Shelters serve all people in the area who require safe overnight refuge when hazardous weather conditions are expected. Further activations will be weather dependent.
