Stations Open for Locals without Power

WARMING CENTER PICEUGENE, Ore. — There are places to go in Eugene and Springfield for people who are still without power so you can take a quick shower or charge your electronics.

In Eugene, you can go to the public libraries or city pools. People at the library say knowing the cities are offering help is encouraging.

“I really appreciate that they’re willing to do that…I work for the Relief Nursery and we work with a lot of families who struggle anyway, and if they’ve lost power, to know that there are places they can go and stay warm, that’s fantastic. So, I’m glad they’re making that effort,” said Eugene resident Jessie Carpenter.
