NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

The Nashville chapter of the American Red Cross has opened an emergency shelter for Greyhound Bus passengers stranded in Nashville because of the winter storm across the southeast.

The shelter opened at 4 p.m. at Mount Nebo Missionary Baptist Church, 2416 Clifton Rd.

The shelter is providing meals, water, cots and a place to shower, all completely free of cost.

"We are working in coordination with the local Greyhound station to offer a safe, warm place for anyone who is stranded and unable to return home due to the inclement weather currently affecting many cities across the southeast," said Red Cross Regional CEO Joel Sullivan.

The operation is funded by voluntary donations.
