Mayor Eric Garcetti today urged people without a warm roof over their heads to seek protection from the chilly weather at shelters set up around Los Angeles County.

“If you do not have shelter or your residence is not warm enough, call our winter shelter hotline or go to a designated pick-up point to be transported to a shelter,” Garcetti said.

A shuttle in Venice will transport people from Market Street and Ocean Front Walk to a shelter each night between 5 p.m. and 7:15 p.m.
