Cold weather reminder: Paducah Warming Center is open

PADUCAH — With snow falling outside during a Local 6 Weather Authority Alert Day on Friday, we have a reminder about a warming center you can use in Paducah if you need to get out of the cold night air.

The Paducah Warming Center is open Friday night. It’s in the Community Kitchen at 1237 Martin Luther King Jr. Drive. It opens when the temperature is 40 degrees or below. The warming center has cots and linens, and people staying there can use the laundry and shower facilities as well.

Community Kitchen called Local 6 Friday evening asking to remind you that they are open for anyone to use. They also noted that they open at 5 for dinner.

According to the city of Paducah, people who want to use the warming center should arrive at Community Kitchen before 10 p.m., because the doors are locked from that time until 6 a.m. People in the warming center can usually stay there until 8 a.m. the next morning, but sometimes people can stay later if it is particularly cold out.
