DETROIT (AP) - The city of Detroit and nonprofit organizations have set up three warming centers to offer places to get out of freezing temperatures.

The centers are open until through March 31. Detroit recreation centers and public library branches also serve as places for people to warm up.

The city of Detroit is contracting with Cass Community Social Services, Operation Get Down and Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries to provide temporary relief from the cold weather. All of the centers will operate during inclement weather, including holidays.

The three facilities combined are expected to accommodate 350 to 400 people at a time.
