The town's emergency shelter at Quarry Hill School on Margaret Street is now open at 10:00 P.M. Saturday. Many power outages have occurred as a result of the snowstorm and downed trees and tree limbs on wires. Residents requiring a place to stay that is warm and safe should come to the shelter when they are able to do so. Power company crews are responding but delays in restoring power should be expected due to the widespread areas affected.
If you have a special medical condition or other special need, do not hesitate to contact the Monson Police Department at 267-4128 to request assistance.
The shelter will remain open until it is no longer needed.
