Two men found dead near homeless camps as bitter cold engulfs Houston

One man was found about 7 a.m. Tuesday in the 300 block of Hamilton near Minute Maid Park, not far from the Loaves and Fishes soup kitchen. The other man was found about 9:15 a.m. in the 100 block of Richmond near a homeless camp.

Large shelters suspended some rules to allow the homeless to get indoors and a temporary warming center was set up by the American Red Cross at South Main Baptist Church's recreation center at 200 Colquitt. Free rides were offered by MetroLift to shelters or other facilities, the mayor said.

"I'm ready for this cold to go away," he said, accepting a fleece blanket from the shelter's "Love in Action" minivan, which stopped briefly outside the Loaves and Fishes at 2009 Congress.
