KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - The snow storm led to homeless shelters filling up fast.
We stopped by Knox Area Rescue Ministries in Knoxville.
The shelter says they were about 15 over capacity around 9:00 p.m. Wednesday. But the shelter is still operating under a white flag.
That means anyone is welcome to come in
"If they don't have a place where they can get in out of the weather, it's possible they could freeze to death out there. A lot of them are staying out there in camps by choice but the police are doing everything they can to get them in here," David Lay of KARM told Local 8 News.
Lay went on to say that Wednesday night's numbers were actually a little smaller than what he expected for a snowy night.
