Due to anticipated freezing weather conditions, four Kitsap County Severe Weather Shelters will be activated Monday.
The shelters are open from 6 p.m. to 7 a.m., except for the Village Green location in Kingston which closes at 6:30 a.m. Guests cannot 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:
- Gateway Fellowship, West Wing Building 18901 8th Ave NE Poulsbo, WA
- Port Orchard United Methodist Church 725 Kitsap St Port Orchard, WA
- Silverdale United Methodist Church 9982 Silverdale Way Silverdale, WA
- Village Green Community Center 26159 Dulay Rd NE Kingston, WA
Additionally, the Salvation Army operates as an independent winter shelter and is open every night through March 15 at 832 6th Street in Bremerton.
The Severe Weather Shelters serve anyone in the Kitsap area who require safe overnight refuge when hazardous weather conditions are expected. Further activations are weather dependent.
