Red Cross Opens Shelter on Long Island

February 8, 2013

MINEOLA, NY, Feb. 8 — The American Red Cross has opened a shelter at Westbury High School, 1 Post Ave, Old Westbury.

While Long Islanders are encouraged to remain in their owns as the storm hits, the shelter serves as an alternative for those who may not feel safe in their homes.

Cots and blankets will be provided; however, those seeking shelter should bring hygiene gear, pillows, medications, change of clothes, toys for children, and other comfort items.

At this time, no shelters are open in Suffolk County, though volunteers are on alert and shelter supplies have been pre-positioned.

Long Islanders are encouraged to visit http://www.redcross.org for storm safety information and shelter locations. They may also call 1-877-RED-CROSS.
