UPDATE: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that emergency homeless shelters were open in San Diego. That information was based on a news release from the city that was not correct. The story has been updated.

Inclement weather homeless shelters will open Saturday through Monday in downtown San Diego, according to city officials.

Emergency shelter information is available by dialing 2-1-1, where callers will be provided with emergency shelter information and referrals to partner agencies who can accommodate immediate housing needs during severe weather, officials said.

People Assisting the Homeless, or PATH, and St. Vincent de Paul Village will not activate their inclement weather shelters in the downtown San Diego area on Saturday.

The County of San Diego has activated its inclement weather response, which gives out motel vouchers.

Anyone looking for shelter is encouraged to call 2-1-1, a free, 24-hour, confidential phone service. Information is also available online by by visiting 211sandiego.org.
