Emergency shelters open again tonight for Dearborn, Heights residents without power

Stout, McCollough-Unis schools being used as shelter locations

DEARBORN – The city again will open two overnight emergency shelters starting at 6 p.m. today for Dearborn and Dearborn Heights residents who are without power due to the recent windstorm.

The shelters are at McCollough-Unis School, 7801 Maple St., and Stout Middle School, 18500 Oakwood Blvd. The Ford Community & Performing Arts Center, which was used as a shelter Thursday night, will not be a shelter location.

Also, the city exhausted its supply of dry ice, so that no longer will be distributed at the Ford Center.

The shelters, run in conjunction with the American Red Cross, will have cots for sleeping. Volunteers will assist at the shelter operations.

Space is available on a first-come, first-served basis.

The shelters will be open until 8 a.m. March 11; however, officials will evaluate conditions to determine if additional nights are needed.
