Red Cross Shelter Closes; School Still Open for Hot Showers

Fresh water is available at high school, as well.

If you are one of the 2,477 people in the Town of East Hampton who don't have power thanks to Sandy, there are a few places that are open for you to go for a hot shower and to charge up your cellphone.

The Red Cross shelter at East Hampton High School, which opened Monday morning for those who wanted to ride out the storm, closed on Thursday at noon, according to Pedro Rivera, who was working there and said at the height of the storm there were over 250 people using the shelter.

Despite classes were cancelled the rest of the week, the high school remained open as a place for some relief. People can take showers and charge up their cellphones between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.

Also, if you need fresh water, there is a large container from which you can fill up, located in the high school parking lot. Just bring your own containers to transport the water.

LTV in Wainscott opened its doors to the public. Free wireless Internet is available from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursday and Friday. There may even be extended hours, depending on demand. The phones are working again, so call for more information at 631-537-2777.

The East Hampton Library is also opened for anyone who wants to charge up their cellphone or get on the Internet.

Where else can people get some relief as they await the lights to come back on?
