King County opened severe weather shelters Thursday as the region prepared for a wintry blast — snow and overnight temperatures in the 20s.

The county opened emergency shelters in Auburn, Kent and Renton. Bellevue, Federal Way and Seattle also opened emergency shelters overnight.

The closest facilities to Issaquah include the Sophia Way Eastside Winter Shelter at Bellevue First Congregational Church, 752 108th Ave. N.E., for women and children from anywhere in King County, and the Congregations for the Homeless Eastside Men’s Shelter at St. Peter’s United Methodist Church, 17222 N.E. Eighth St., Bellevue.

In Issaquah, city leaders not have any immediate plans to open a cold weather shelter.
