Due to predicted cold weather entering the area today with lows tonight projected around zero degrees, New Milford plans to open warming shelters. Starting at noon, until noon tomorrow, the town's Severe Cold Weather protocol will be in place. The library will act as the warming shelter. Loaves and Fishes will then be the shelter from 4:30pm to 8:30pm. First Congregational Church will be open 8:30pm through 6am Saturday. The Community Emergency Response Team will open 25 Church St from 6am and remain open until 9am tomorrow, when the Library reopens.
