Birmingham warming station to open Wednesday

The Mayor's Office and the City of Birmingham will open a warming station Wednesday.

The station will be open Wednesday through Friday nights at the Boutwell Auditorium as a result of freezing temperatures. The facility opens at 6 p.m. those three nights.

Volunteers are encouraged to call the Office of Public Information at (205) 254-2823. Donations of bottled water, blankets and socks will be accepted at Boutwell Auditorium.
