In the aftermath of our major wind storm this week, some citizens are having a difficult time finding resources for food, fuel, and power that are open and available.

The City of Spokane is working to gather information that's helpful for our citizens.

Click on the links to get to specific information:

  • Grocery stores: On this list (PDF 65 KB), open stores are highlighted in green; closed stores are highlighted in red.  Note that some stores don't have perishable items available.
  • Warming centers and shelters: A number of shelters are available for citizens who don't have power in their homes. Spokane Public Schools has opened five schools on Friday, Nov. 20, with free meals for children, phone charging and internet access. Community Centers and other facilities also are providing additional warming options (PDF 61 KB).
  • Phone charging and computer access: Spokane Public Library branches have extended hours through the weekend. Go to the Spokane Public Library web site for additional information.
  • Urgent Care Facilities: If you're sick and your regular doctor isn't available, here is a list of facilities (PDF 74 KB) that are open.
  • Fuel Facilities: Many fuel stations are open today. Here's a list of what we know is open (PDF 37 KB).

The City will continue to add information as we collect more information.
