OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - The Salvation Army in Omaha has announced it will open several locations in the city and nearby Council Bluffs, Iowa, for people to escape the bitter cold that has gripped much of the nation.

The group says its Kroc Center in southeastern Omaha, North Corps Community Center in northeast Omaha, Citadel Corps in midtown Omaha and Council Bluffs location across the Missouri River will serve as warming centers through Friday. The Kroc Center will be open from 5 a.m. through 9 p.m. The other two Omaha locations open from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The Council Bluffs center opens from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The Salvation Army opens warming centers when the wind chill dips below freezing or air temperature drops below 15 degrees (-12.22 Celsius).
