Shelters opening during dangerously cold temps

A couple of shelters have opened in East Tennessee to help folks trying to stay safe from the cold.

In Greene County, a shelter is open at Hal Henard Elementary School on East Vann Road. The director of emergency management says cots will be set up at the school, but there will not be food available.

The Red Cross has also opened a shelter at the Dotson Memorial Baptist Church in Maryville.

Temperatures will settle into the single digits Monday night with wind chills that make it feel in the negatives. Tuesday's highs are expected to reach the mid-teens.

Many schools and businesses are closing early Monday and already cancelling services for Tuesday. Check out the list at www.wbir.com/closings.
