From Hamilton County Emergency Management and Homeland Security Agency:
Hamilton, OH – While Duke Energy crews are working diligently to restore power to Hamilton County communities affected by the recent ice storm, residents may be in need of a warm place to go until power is back on. If you are currently without power in your home, consider visiting a restaurant, shopping mall, community center, or your local library to get warm.
For those in need of a warm place to go, please be aware that all City of Cincinnati Recreation Centers have been opened as warming centers during normal business hours. You can find your local recreation center here: https://www.cincinnati-oh.gov/recreation/facilities1/recreation-centers/. For information about an open warming center in your community, please contact your local municipal leaders, fire or police departments.
The Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County is also welcoming those who are without power, encouraging residents to visit their local library branch for warmth. To find your nearest library location and for hours of operation, please visit: https://www.cincinnatilibrary.org/info/hours.asp.
