BROWNSVILLE - The cooler temperatures are causing a Rio Grande Valley shelter to fill up.

Representatives of the Good Neighbor Settlement House in Brownsville tell us people showing up for meals increased nearly 50 percent. They believe it's due to the colder weather.

Leo Rosales of the Good Neighbor Settlement House said, "The wind blew in. The rain came in, and it got colder. And we got more people come in and eat."

He adds this is only the beginning. He's expecting the numbers to go up, as the temperatures continue to drop.
