UPDATE: Berrien Co. Red Cross shelter is moving


The Red Cross of West Michigan has opened shelters in Berrien County and Cass County due to the large amount of power outages in the area.

The Berrien County shelter is moving to a new location.  It had been at 3838 Niles Road in St. Joseph, Michigan, but is now at The First Church of God at 3838 Niles Rd.  It will still be open 24 hours a day as it's needed.

The Cass County shelter is at the Dowagiac Armory Headquarters, 700 W. Prairie Ronde St. in Dowagiac. It will also be open 24 hours.

Communications Director Kelly Hudson says if you're going to the shelter make sure you bring an overnight bag of items you will need.

Those items include medications, pillows, blankets and supplies for babies.  No pets are allowed, though.
