CARROLL COUNTY (WLFI) - Several people were reported to be without power this morning across Carroll County. The Carroll County Community Center decided to step in and help those affected.

The center turned its facilities into a warming shelter this morning. The decision came after learning of the power outages and due to the cold.

Carroll White REMC has since reported that all power has been restored.

Visitors will be able to access the facility for free through Wednesday. Amenities include basketball courts, a weight room and children's center.

Jessica Dill is the community center's director. She says the warming center is meant to serve more than just those who lost power. "We just wanted everybody to feel welcome and if they wanted to come in, they needed a place to stay, get warm and stop for a second and get a snack, we're here,” said Dill.

She wanted to make the center open for all to enjoy. "We are welcoming everyone in whether they are a member here or not. Anybody in Carroll County and anybody in the outside counties,” added Dill.

The warming center will remain open through 8 o'clock Wednesday. It's located on 908 East Columbia Street in Flora.
