MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - The City of Memphis has announced that the warming center at the Marion Hale Community Center will be extending its operation by two days.

The warming center will now be open tonight, January 9, and tomorrow, January 10, from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m.

This warming center was established as a part of the city’s cold weather plan. It is intended to help residents escape extremely low temperatures after normal business hours for city government buildings.
