Red Cross opens temporary shelter in Hendersonville due to weather

From the Times-News:

The American Red Cross in downtown Hendersonville has opened a temporary shelter this afternoon as bitter-cold temperatures are forecast to grip the mountains for a second consecutive night.

Henderson County Deputy Fire Marshall Wally Hollis said the Red Cross center opened its doors at 1 p.m. today as a “comfort station” for those seeking shelter from the cold, with temperatures hovering right at freezing this afternoon and forecasting to dip into the teens overnight. The shelter is located at the corner of Second Avenue East and Grove Street, across from the 1995 Courthouse. Call 693-5605 for more information.
