Emergency shelter opened at senior center

Note from Mayor Art Ward:
As a result of the gusting winds and extremely cold temperatures, the gymnasium at the Bristol Senior Center was opened as a temporary shelter for those experiencing power outages and was staffed by members of the Bristol CERT Team.
At the time, the city was experiencing over 18,000 wind-related power outages throughout the city and extremely high winds were causing street light outages and falling limbs in many areas.
Authorities have informed us that most, if not all, of the power should be restored within the next two hours and that the gusting winds should diminish within the next 3 to 4 hours,
We will continue to monitor the situation until we deem that the shelter is no longer needed.

Update at 6:20 p.m. -- Read reporter Freesia Singngam's story about the weather woes.
