The Baltimore City Health Department declared a Severe Cold Blue code weather alert effective at 6 p.m. on Monday through Wednesday, January 10 at 10 a.m.

Maryland cities are expanding the homeless services in response to the extreme cold weather expected over the next next 36 hours. Emergency shelters are opening their doors all over the city.

“The Mayor’s Office of Human Services will operate a 24-hour Housing & Resource Center for men and women at 620 Fallsway with 60 additional beds (total capacity 335 individuals) available for residents seeking meals and sleeping quarters,” the health department said. “City officials will coordinate multiple resources and outreach to encourage homeless individuals to take advantage of shelters. Additional overflow homeless shelters will be opened and emergency shelters will keep extended hours.”

Residents are encouraged to contact 311 if a neighbor is without heat or power so that city agencies can assist them. For cold-related inquiries and service requests, or to find a nearby homeless shelter, residents can call 311 (410-396-3100 after hours).

To report a power outage, call 1-800-685-0123. To report down/sparking wires or dim/flickering lights, call 1-877-778-2222.
