If it's one thing that Alabama, Florida, and Georgia have in common right now is that they're having cold nights.
That's why shelters have opened in Crestview, Florida for those who simply do not have a warm place to stay or are having problems with their heating.
Every day that lows are predicted to go below 40 degrees in that area, shelters are open from 6:00pm to 8:00am.
Today and tomorrow, the community of Christ on Crestview’s W. 1st Ave. will be open and in Fort Walton the Gregg Chapel AME will be available for those who need it.
