With cold weather & rain, warming centers open across Santa Clara County

Cold temperatures have rolled into Santa Clara County. As a protective measure, the County has opened up a number of warming centers…

Recent temperatures have been so low that inland areas have been seeing frost, and heavier rainfall than what Milpitas has already been seeing is expected over the coming weekend. Milpitas residents can also expect to see overnight temperatures dropping into the mid-high 30s. 

In a County press release, Kathryn Kaminski, Director of the Office of Supportive Housing, said, “The County libraries regularly operate as warming centers and provide refuge to those facing the cold.”

With lower temperatures come a higher amount of cold-related illnesses such as frostbite and hypothermia. Older adults, young kids, people with chronic medical issues, and unhoused residents face particular risk. Through the winter, people are advised to stay indoors, or to dress in layers when outdoors. Waterproof clothing is ideal for protection against hypothermia. Staying hydrated and avoiding wet clothes are also key, as is avoiding alcohol and drug use, both of which can exacerbate cold weather-related harm. 

The County libraries are safe and heated, and operate as warming centers during regular business hours. The complete list of warming center locations can be found here and is also provided below:
