Red Cross To Continue Shelter For Residents Without Power

Red Cross To Continue Shelter For Residents Without Power

County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo and Mayor Lovely Warren announced that the Red Cross will be continuing operations at the David F. Gantt Center at 700 North Street, Rochester, NY 14605 which currently serves as a temporary shelter for families and individuals without electricity.

Due to ongoing power outages throughout the area caused by high winds and a weather forecast calling for snow flurries and temperatures in the low teens, this temporary shelter will remain open for members of the community who are experiencing extended power outages. While most residents are choosing to utilize resources including family or friends, shelter arrangements will be available for those affected until power is restored.

Those wishing to utilize the shelter should contact the Red Cross at 585-241-4400. Specific questions regarding the shelter should be referred to the American Red Cross.

Questions regarding power outages should be directed to RGE. Information is also available on their website at http://www.rge.com/outages/outageinformation.html
