Shoreline’s Emergency Severe Weather Shelter to open Sunday night

Due to the predicted cold weather that will enter the region this weekend, the North Urban Human Services Alliance (NUHSA), in partnership with the City of Shoreline, will open Shoreline’s Emergency Severe Weather Shelter Sunday night.

The Severe Weather Shelter is located at 1206 N 185th St (the old Shoreline Police station). The operating hours for the Shelter are 8:30pm to 7:30am.

This shelter is an emergency, overnight shelter for individuals needing to get out of the elements. No meals will be provided. The shelter is for individuals 18 and over and pets are not allowed.

The threshold for activation will generally be a prediction of four-plus hours of temperatures at or below 33 degrees overnight or snow accumulation or expected accumulation of two or more inches.

To find out if the Shelter will be activated after Sunday, call the Shoreline Severe Weather Shelter hotline at 206-801-2797.
