EL PASO- Homeless shelters are swelling with people who need to come in from the cold.

The Salvation Army has brought in extra cots and blankets and spreading them across every available floor space. They expect a crowd tonight at their shelter on Paisano. Many folks arrived last night as the cold wind blistered El Paso.

"He was as cold as he could be. He had one blanket around him and that was it. We tried to get him in as quickly as we could, get him warmed up with something to snack on," says John Martin, Salvation Army.

Reverend Martin says many homeless people have no idea where to go. He says if you see a person on the street who seems to be in trouble, call police or the Sheriff’s office and tell them where they can pick up that person.
