    HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (KTHV) - Volunteers from the American Red Cross and the Salvation Army have been on hand to help out during the ice storm.

    You can find them at the warming shelters available in several places in central Arkansas, including the location at the Convention Center in Hot Springs. This shelter is replacing two that opened up at local churches right after the storm, so it is the main you need to go in Hot Springs if you need help.

    In addition to offering a warm place to stay, they are offering chicken soup and water. Shelters will stay open as long as they are needed, and people can drop by overnight.

    People taking advantage of these shelters said it's been a rough past few days without power.

    The Convention Center is located at 134 Convention Boulevard.

    As for the volunteers, one crew of three came from Cherokee Village in Northeast Arkansas and drove four hours to lend a hand.
