No Shelter Information Available Just Yet

No Shelter Information Available Just Yet

While you may be curious what your options are, should you need to go to a shelter during Hurricane Sandy in a few days, a shelter list is not yet available.

East Hampton Village Police Captain Mike Tracey said his department is already getting calls from residents looking to find out information about available shelters.

"Shelter information is not available at this time," he said. The locations are decided based on the area's need and they are selected from a list of possible locations once it has been determined there's an expectation for them, he said. Plans are then implemented to staff them and then the locations will be announced to the public.

Shelter information, if needed, will be announced by the Town of East Hampton and broadcast over local radio, as well as LTV. Patch will provide a list as soon as one is available.

So, stay tuned!
