In preparation for more storms to come, the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority is taking action. They announced seven temporary shelters will open to help the homeless take cover. Four opened on Monday night and the additional three will open tonight.
The spaces will combine to house an additional 1,131 people during the rain and cold temperatures, according to CBS LA. The National Weather Service predicts at least three storms this week.
The additional shelters are in county-owned gymnasiums in areas including Hawthorne, Sylmar, Hacienda Heights and Castaic. More information about locations and transportation are available via the Homeless Services Authority website or by calling 211.
