With Hurricane Sandy making its presence felt in the state, The Town Of Cheshire has opened its Emergency Shelter for residents.
The shelter was opened at noon today, Oct. 29. Residents can go to the shelter, located at the Cheshire Youth Center, 559 S. Main St. This facility will serve as the primary shelter for the storm. However, if more residents are in need of shelter, Cheshire High School will be opened and act at the primary shelter.
CHS served as an emergency shelter this time last year when the Town was pummeled with a freak Nor'easter. Local officials have already moved an emergency generator to the school in case of widespread power outages. As of 1 p.m. on Oct. 29, Connecticut Light & Power was reporting that more than 18,500 customers all over the state were without power.
Cheshire Police Lt. James Fasano said residents with questions should call the Cheshire Police Department at (203)271-5500.
911 should only be used for emergencies.
