El Pasoans woke up this morning to see snow sticking to the ground, leading to dangerous road conditions and some folks struggling to stay warm. Late Wednesday night, raindrops turned into snowflakes that covered the streets making El Paso less of the Sun City and more of a Snow City.

Today's temperature is expected to be the coldest we've seen the entire winter season in the Borderland and the problem is, many El Pasoans aren't prepared for dangerous cold weather conditions. The City of El Paso is working hard to try and help people who may find themselves struggling to stay warm in the cold.

There are seven warming centers that have been opened in El Paso for residents to use. These warming centers are open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. February 2nd through February 5th:

  • Galatzan Recreation Center
    • 650 Wallenberg Dr.
  • Marty Robbins Rec Center
    • 11600 Vista Del Sol Dr.
  • Memorial Senior Center
    • 1800 Byron St.
  • Chamizal Community Center
    • 2119 Cypress Ave.
  • Wellington Chew Senior Center
    • 4430 Maxwell Ave.
  • Pavo Real Senior Center
    • 9301 Alameda Ave.

The City of El Paso is also working with the El Paso Fire Department to help get El Pasoans in need of blankets to keep them warm. The Extreme Weather Taskforce has been preparing for the incoming snow by gathering donations of blankets to distribute to people in need. You can still donate blankets by dropping them off at any El Paso Fire Department and the Horizon Fire Department stations. Anyone who needs a free blanket can dial 2-1-1 for more information.
