Local shelters, resources available during winter weather


San Marcos residents brave the snow and cold, Monday, Feb.15, 2021, on Wonder World Drive.

As power outages continue to linger throughout the San Marcos area, several warming centers and shelters have opened to provide residents with resources and safety.

The University Star has compiled a list of available locations on where residents can visit to seek shelter.

Warming buses, shelter and food. The center says it is offering free food “24/7” until Feb. 20.
