WICHITA FALLS, Texas (TNN) - The city of Wichita Falls has changed locations for their temporary relief station after a second pipe broke at the MPEC on Tuesday.

The second line broke while work was being done to fix the initial broken water pipe. The city has partnered with two private facilities due to the broken water lines and the uncertainty regarding power outages.

City Hope Church and Evangel Temple will be coordinating with the city as the two main relief station locations and overnight shelters due to their availability of backup power. The city will be providing infrastructure support, cots, water, charging stations and security.

  • Both locations will follow COVID-19 guidelines
  • Be sure to bring medications, blankets and pillows
  • For individuals stranded or who need assistance, you can contact the Relief Station Hotline at (940) 761-7907

City Hope Church is located at 4301 Cedar Elm Lane. The church is open now and ready to receive those who need services; small pets are allowed but they must be in a kennel.

Evangel Temple is located at 3800 Barnett Road and is also open now for those who need services.
