CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The city and local businesses are gearing up to help protect everyone from the cold.
The city detailed its plans at a press conference this morning.
City officials spoke about the arctic air that is expected to hit our area over the weekend.
Mayor Paulette Guajardo and City Manager Peter Zanoni spoke today on the cold weather and what we are doing expecting to see in the coming days.
The city is discussing opening warming shelters that will be open throughout Corpus Christi facilities like senior centers and libraries.
Guajardo also spoke on the importance of protecting the most vulnerable populations in the area which include the elderly, the homeless and our animals.
Zanoni and Guajardo said that they will make sure that no homeless person is left out in the streets. They are working with the Salvation Army to ensure that they have the space for homeless residents and if not, the city is working with the shelter and has a plan in place.
Remember to make sure all pets are brought indoors or provide them with enough warmth outside. It’s best if they are brought indoors on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.
