Cold weather shelter opens in Campbell County

LAFOLLETTE, Tenn. (WATE) - Officials in Campbell County say a shelter is opening Monday night due to the cold.

The cafeteria at the old West LaFollette School, 300 W. Beech Street, opened as a shelter at 5 p.m. Monday.

LaFollette Mayor Mike Stanfield says the shelter is opening out of an abundance of caution. He says they need the community to spread the word about the need for volunteers and donations of items like food, drinks, cups, plates and sleeping bags.

The WATE 6 On Your Side Storm Team says temperatures are expected to dip into the single digits Monday night with wind chill values below zero.
