All of the emergency weather shelters that are open tonight in Seattle

Jan 15 2020, 6:10 pm

In the wake of the cold weather and snowy conditions, most emergency shelters in Seattle are extending their services to Thursday, January 16.

Last night, nearly 350 individuals sought refuge in the Seattle Center Exhibition Hall, City Hall, and the King County Administration Building emergency shelters. In a news conference Tuesday night, it was revealed that although the Seattle Center Exhibition Hall and City Hall shelter have hit capacity, no one will be turned away from the emergency shelters.

“No one was nor will be today turned away,” said Jason Johnson, from the city’s Human Services Department. “This emergency shelter is low-barrier. All are welcome, and we really want people to take full advantage of this additional shelter resource.”

The Parks and Human Services Department will continue to monitor weather conditions and shelter capacity to determine if the city must open additional emergency shelters.

The Seattle Center Armory will continue to serve as a warming center from 7 to 9 pm, while certain shelters have already announced updated shelter hours:
