Clermont, Butler counties open 'warming centers'

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Looking for a place to warm up in Clermont and Butler counties?

The Butler County Sheriff's Office said anyone from the county that anyone who needs needing temporary relief from the cold for the next few days is permitted to warm up in the main lobby area of the Butler County Jail, 705 Hanover St.  Hamilton.

"If you are cold and don't have any place to go, you are certainly welcome here in our lobby," Sheriff Richard Jones said. These temperature conditions can be life-threatening.

"At least you can have someplace to get a little relief.  We do have restroom facilities available, and the temperature inside is guaranteed to be warmer than what it is outside. I don't want anyone to fear freezing to death. Come in and warm up, even if it's just for a little while."

In Clermont County, two "warming centers" are open until power is restored. The centers are at the Loveland Safety Center, 126 S. Lebanon Road, Loveland and the Symmes Township Safety Center, 8871 Weekly Lane, Symmes Township. 

Residents affected by the outage are welcome to come to the warming centers. The warming and charging centers will allow those without power the opportunity to charge cellular phones and escape the extreme cold temperatures.  The centers will provide electrical outlets.  Residents must provide their own chargers.

Residents may contact Duke Energy at (800) 543-5599 or via their website at www.duke-energy.com for additional information related to the power outage.   The county urges residents not to call 911 or local police for updates on power restoration because they will not have this information.
