Red Cross opens shelter in Greenwich for residents without power
The Red Cross has set up a shelter at the Eastern Middle School after more than 9,000 residents remain without power in the town of Greenwich Monday. With winds whipping through at almost 50 miles per hour Sunday, the storm left a third of Greenwich residents powerless and longing for a warm place to sleep. Only six residents slept at the shelter Sunday night, most of them headed to nearby hotels instead. Brooke Urban, of the Red Cross, says the shelter is open to everyone but it is difficult to get the word out when the power is out. Connecticut Light and Power officials say they hope to have power restored by Tuesday. Related Article:
