"A FREEZE WARNING MEANS SUB-FREEZING TEMPERATURES ARE IMMINENT OR EXPECTED FOR AT LEAST 2 HOURS. APPROPRIATE ACTION SHOULD BE TAKEN TO ENSURE TENDER VEGETATION AND OUTDOOR PETS HAVE ADEQUATE PROTECTION FROM THE COLD TEMPERATURES. YOUNG CHILDREN…THE ELDERLY AND THE HOMELESS ARE ESPECIALLY VULNERABLE TO THE COLD. TAKE MEASURES TO PROTECT THEM."
This is the boilerplate from a National Weather Service warning to State /Local governments, and other agencies/NGOs that occurs when temperatures are expected to drop below freezing for at least two hours (cached @ google).
Tomorrow morning, after a cold rain, the temperature is expected to be ONE DEGREE above freezing for ‘at least 2 hours’ at Santa Cruz California. This city, an alleged ‘vortex’ of progressive liberal politics, a city that (falsely) claims it provides SOoooooo many homeless services that the homeless allegedly ‘flock to Santa Cruz’ for those ‘services’, will do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to protect it’s homeless and other at risk citizens who for some reason cannot utilize the overcrowded and unhealthy-for-habitation armory “shelter”, except perhaps let them ‘shelter in place’ under a cardboard box. Even as their new Golden State Warriors D-League covered/heated stadium near to the downtown area remains unused 95% of the year by the city, a city that at best.is capable of sheltering 10% of it’s at-risk from the weather citizens under any circumstances, .
The image below it (highlights added) is a warning relayed from Arizona state agencies to a behavioral health provider who then notified their agents… in a state alleged to be one of the most hostile to the homeless in the United States.
Even in a state with a redneck ‘sheriff’ like Joe Arpaio, recently removed-by-force from office for various federal civil rights violations there is more concern for their homeless. NO SUCH WARNINGS will be issued locally by anyone ‘responsible’.
