Temperatures dropping, severe weather shelters open

Four shelters will be open overnight until freezing conditions end

PORT ORCHARD — With the weather forecast predicting freezing weather conditions this week, the four Kitsap County severe weather shelters will be activated, according to Kitsap County Emergency Management spokesman Dave Rasmussen.

Rasmussen said the shelters will be open Monday, Dec. 3 and will continue operations as long as freezing weather conditions continue. Hours of operation will be from 6 p.m. until 7 a.m., except for the Village Green location in Kingston. Guests will not be able to check into the shelters 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., Port Orchard

Silverdale United Methodist Church

9982 Silverdale Way, Silverdale

The severe weather shelters serve all citizens in the county who require safe overnight refuge when hazardous weather conditions are expected, Rasmussen said. Additional activations will be weather-dependent. For more information about the weather shelter program, call 211.
