Kokomo Senior Center to be open as 24-hour warming center starting Tuesday

The Kokomo Senior Center, 721 W. Superior St., will be open beginning at 6 a.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 29 and will remain open (24 hours per day) until 5 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 31  as a warming center. The center will be fully-staffed during that time.

Temperatures in Central Indiana will be in the negatives with dangerous wind chills over the course of the next three days, according to the National Weather Service.

“We want to ensure that citizens who need a place to warm up, have a place to go,” said Kokomo Mayor Greg Goodnight. “When it gets this cold, it can be life-threatening. We do not want anyone’s life to be in peril simply because they have no place to go.”
