Tifton opens emergency shelter


Anybody without heat or a home in Tift County can find a warm place to sleep.

The Emergency Management Agency and the Red Cross opened a shelter at the South Central Community Center on South Central Avenue Monday night.

Emergency Management Director Jason Jones said, "We're here for the community, and we just try to be prepared. That's really one of our main jobs in emergency management. And like I said out of an abundance of caution, just wanted to make this available."

The shelter will be open available again Tuesday night, as long as people show up by 10:00 p.m.
