Birmingham opens warming station

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - The city of Birmingham has opened a warming station because of the extremely cold weather.

The city opened Boutwell Auditorium on Sunday for people who needed a place to stay. Last week, when the warming station was open, more than 100 people took shelter there.

City leaders said they want to make sure everyone stays safe with the temperatures dipping low.

The warming station at Boutwell will reopen Monday night and close Tuesday morning.
