The Red Cross has worked with South Plains Electric Cooperative and Lubbock County Emergency Management to identify homes without power in South Lubbock County as a result of this afternoon's thunderstorms. In response the Red Cross will be opening a warming center at Bacon Heights Baptist Church (5110 54th St or 53rd & Slide Road) in Lubbock for those who need a place to stay warm while they wait for power to be restored. The warming center will open at 9pm this evening. Anyone going to the center is advised to bring any personal items they may need such as blankets, pillows, books, etc. Animals will not be permitted in the center.
