Where to Get Warm During Extreme Cold
With the weather expected to drop to dangerously cold temperatures this week, it is important for residents to be prepared and know where they can go to get out of the cold. If residents are in need of a place to warm up, they can consider visiting a restaurant, shopping mall, community center, or a local library.
Please be aware that all City of Cincinnati Recreation Centers will be opened as warming centers during normal business hours.
