 The Salvation Army's in Hattiesburg and Laurel are expecting to have a full house in their shelter's because of extremely cold temperatures.

Both shelters opened their doors at 5 p.m. Wednesday and they will remain open until 7 a.m. Warming Centers will be available at both facilities during the day as long as the temperatures remain below 40-degrees. They each have separate areas for men and women and children. The Hattiesburg shelter can typically house 60-people and Laurel's has 40-beds. Both can add additional space for more people if needed.

"The Salvation Army is here to help those in need in the name of Jesus Christ," said Lt. Stacey Conley, Laurel Salvation Army. Our goal is to meet human needs in his name."

Anyone wanting to stay at the shelter will need a photo I-D.
