Emergency warming station opens

Snowfall triggered the opening of the Warming Station at 516 E. First, Port Angeles.

This relief station for people who have no shelter during the day opened Thursday afternoon from 1-5 p.m. and will remain open through the weekend.

This is the second time this winter that harsh weather has triggered the service, which is staffed by volunteers in a Serenity House of Clallam County facility.

The  Warming Station is located in the Hygiene Center, next door to Serenity House’s Street Outreach Shelter, which is open every night, year ‘round, from 9 p.m. to 6:30 a.m., at 520 E. First.

For more information, or to volunteer or donate, contact the Serenity House administrative office, (360) 452-7224 or
