Following yesterday's wind storm and power outages, the City of Ferndale has announced that it will open a public warming center at the Kulick Community Center this weekend. The center will be open to the public Friday, March 10, 9:00 a.m., through Sunday, March 12, 5:00 p.m, including nights.
DTE reports that roughly 25 percent of Ferndale residents remain out of power following yesterday’s wind storm—classified as one of metro Detroit’s most impactful weather events of all time. The National Weather Service is predicting colder-than-average conditions Friday through Sunday, with daytime temps in the 20s and overnight temps in the low teens. The warming center will help those affected by the cold until power is restored, which DTE expects to happen by Sunday for most.
The warming center is a community service open to anyone in need. The center will provide a warm space and bottled water; it does not provide meals, bedding, or medical services. Those who attend are encouraged to bring sleeping bags, cots, food/drinks, and other comforts.
The Kulick Community Center is located at 1201 Livernois in Ferndale. If you have questions about the warming center, contact the Ferndale Police Department non-emergency at 248-541-3650.
