Expected extreme cold temperatures over the next two nights has resulted in a Code Blue declaration, meaning Lockport's warming shelter will be open from 8 p.m. - 8 a.m. tonight and Thursday at the Salvation Army, 50 Cottage St.

Any homeless person or individual without heat may spend the evening at the Salvation Army where light refreshments and cots/blankets are available to ensure that all are comfortable and safe. Entry will will be permitted until midnight each night.

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.

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..

Overnight lows of 10 and 13 are expected tonight and Thursday, respectively.
