We have opened three regional shelters across central MA in response to storm Sandy. The shelters are located at:
Fitchburg Senior Center, 14 Wallace Ave, Fitchburg
Millville Elementary School, 122 Berthette Way, Millville
Worcester Technical High, 1 Skyline Drive, Worcester
Residents seeking shelter should be careful traveling as there are widespread power outages as well as downed power lines and trees. If at all possible, residents should shelter in place. Those seeking shelter in Red Cross shelters should bring pillows, blankets, medications, toiletries and other comfort items such as books, games and music.
The Worcester DPH tweets that transportation to shelters is available by calling 508-792-3252 until 9pm. Residents can call 2-1-1 for a complete listing of community shelters.
