Roosevelt and Southside Community Centers Activated as Overnight Warming Locations

The Department of Parks, Recreation and Neighborhood Services’ Roosevelt Community Center and Southside Community Center opened as Overnight Warming Locations (OWL) from 8:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m on February 18 and lasting through February 22. The City of San José has opened four OWL sites during periods of inclement weather from December 2017 through April 2018. The OWL uses the following threshold to trigger the activation of one or more sites:

  • an overnight low of 38 degrees or lower with a probability of rain less than 50%; or
  • an overnight low of 42 degrees or lower with a probability of rain of 50% or greater; or
  • prolonged periods of rain with flooding in low-lying areas; or 50% probability of rain for two or more days.

Individuals who utilize the OWL have a safe refuge from cold and/or wet weather, receive food, warm beverages, and social services. For more information, please contact Neil Rufino, PRNS Deputy Director, 408-535-3572.
