For the past few nights, the Salvation Army has been driving a mobile canteen throughout Downtown Sacramento looking for homeless people.
"There have been some folks out there that we’ve been able to assist the last couple of nights."
Sid Fong is with the Salvation Army in Sacramento.
"We’ve been able to give them not only food and beverages but also blankets."
They also let homeless people know where they can go to stay warm. It’s been a while since we’ve had temperatures this cold according to Johnny Powell – a forecaster with the National Weather Service.
"We have went I think 2 ½ years without freezing before so some people get complacent."
He says the dry and cold airmass will continue to remain in place over Northern California for the next few days. But he says the coldest air has passed us.
"Well, it’s moderating now so we’re going to get a little bit warmer each day."
Still, a few hours of below freezing temperatures will remain possible for the next several nights.
