On the heels of a Winter Weather Advisory, temperatures are going to take a nose-dive over the next few days and night, and when you add in the wind gusts, staying outside for extended periods of time is not recommended.

If you or someone you know is homeless, or you find yourself in a desperate situation this weekend, don't take a chance by staying out in the frigid temperatures, head to Sullivan County's Warming Centers, beginning today at 6 pm and continuing through noon this Saturday, December 16.

The warming centers are located in Monticello at the Ted Stroebele Recreation Center, 5 Jefferson Street and in Liberty at the United Methodist Church, 170 North Main Street. Everyone is welcome to come into either of these centers to warm up. These facilities will remain open overnight as well.

Should you find yourself in a fuel emergency, please reach out to the Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP). This program can provide funds for fuel and heating system repair/replacement and help in emergency heating situations. For more information, call 845-807-0142.
