Due to the extreme cold temperatures forecast for this evening, the Code Blue warming shelter will again be open at the Salvation Army from 8 p.m. – 8 a.m.

Entry will be available for any homeless person or individual without heat until midnight, with light refreshments and cots/blankets being made available to ensure that all are comfortable and safe.

Code Blue is a collaboration between the Dale Association, Salvation Army, Lockport CARES, St. John’s Outreach, Grace Episcopal, The Chapel, the Lockport Police Department, and the Grigg Lewis Foundation to care for those without heat and/or shelter this winter.

Code Blue can be called from Oct. 1 to March 31 when weather conditions indicate the temperature will drop to 15 degrees or lower overnight. It is open to any homeless or elderly in need, along with people, who for whatever reason, have lost heat or had a water pipe burst.

Tonight's forecast low according to the National Weather Service is 16 degrees -- as is Wednesday's. However, that does not account for the wind chill. Wind of 20 to 22 mph is expected tonight with gusts of up to 37 mph.

During the day, the Lockport Public Library, St. John's Outreach and the Salvation Army are open to the public and to those looking to take shelter from the cold.
