Council for the Homeless issued a severe weather alert through Wednesday night.

The announcement increases shelter capacity and alerts local organizations to provide additional resources.

The National Weather Service predicts temperatures will drop to 28 degrees tonight in Vancouver.

People who need housing and shelter assistance should call Council for the Homeless’ Housing Hotline at 360-695-9677, which operates from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays and from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on holidays and weekends.

St. Paul’s, located at 1309 Franklin St. in downtown Vancouver across from the Courthouse, is open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. as a daytime warming shelter during this alert. Enter by going down the stairs on the outside of the building.
