The Social Services Division's staff attended a monthly Homeless to Home lunch today. Each month, a variety of local agencies and passionate individuals meet to network and share resources. Their goal is to put an end to local homelessness.
The National Weather Service in Ruskin is advising “[a] powerful cold front will bring another shot of Arctic air into the region. This will result in a couple of nights of freezing temperatures and very cold wind chills for the region Wednesday and Thursday nights. While the cold spell will be quite intense, it looks to be shorter in duration than the last. Temperatures should rebound to near normal for the weekend.”
Wind chills at these temperatures may result in frostbite to exposed skin and hypothermia. Bring pets and sensitive plants indoors. Protect backflow pipes and other water-related systems by insulating from [primarily] the wind.
New Hope Church at 5600 S Biscayne Drive will open both nights at 7pm.
Emergency Management will publish additional briefings if conditions change.
