An emergency severe weather shelter will be open in Ashland on Sunday evening, the City of Ashland has announced.
Doors to Pioneer Hall at 73 Winburn Way are set to open at noon Sunday. People wishing to shelter there for the night need to enter by 9 p.m., with lights out at 10. Doors will be locked from 10 p.m. Sunday to 6 a.m. Monday. The shelter will close at noon Monday. Pets are welcome.
It’s a “no-frills” shelter, the city says, so attendees should plan on providing their own bedding.
