Original news release from the Bryan/College Station American Red Cross:

As temperatures dip down into the 30’s on Saturday night some residents in Grimes County remain without power following last night’s severe weather.

The American Red Cross is opening a shelter for affected residents who need a place warm to sleep at the Navasota Center at 101 Stadium Drive in Navasota.

“We are opening the shelter due to extended outages and low temperatures,” said Executive Director AJ Renold. “I’ve been in one Navasota neighborhood for six hours and 17 houses are still without power.”

Nearly half a dozen people from that area expressed interest in staying overnight in a warmer, safer location, said Renold.
