Albuquerque opens warming center

Amid a cold front, the Mesa Verde Community Center will be used as a warming center on Monday and possibly Tuesday, the city of Albuquerque announced Sunday.

The warming center will operate from 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Monday. When the center closes for the evening, guests will be offered rides to either the Westside Emergency Housing Center or the Gibson Health Hub to stay overnight, according to a news release from the city.

The National Weather Service is predicting that temperatures will dip below freezing overnight Sunday and Monday, according to the service’s website. The city said it will continue to evaluate if the center should remain open after Monday.

Albuquerque Community Safety can transport anyone on the street to the closest warming center. Call 311 for dispatch, according to the city.

The community center will continue to hold its adults programs. Children who attend after-school programs there will be transported to the Cesar Chavez Community Center, according to the news release.
