Wind chill temperatures are expected to drop as low as sixteen degrees below zero tonight in Bend. Chris Clouart with the Bethlehem Inn says they need your help: “We are getting a lot of people coming to us. We are really approaching capacity, but we are at the stage of the game opening up our dining hall to overnighters. Our goal here is to get people off the street.” Clouart says the Inn has also ran out of sub-zero sleeping bags, hats, gloves, and hand warmers.  Donations will be gratefully appreciated. The City Emergency Declaration will not go into effect unless all homeless shelters are filled. Clouart says ODOT has cleared out some of the area homeless camps so the need for emergency clothing during this period of cold weather is more pronounced. ODOT's Peter Murphy says notice was given that the camps would be removed, but the decision was delayed due to the cold weather.
