Plymouth: Shelter Open

Plymouth was one of the many South Shore communities hit hard by the winter storm that rolled into the area today with flooding and power outages among the major concerns.

Fire Chief Ed Bradley told WATD News this concern caused officials to open up the shelter.



Bradley says folks have already been arriving at the shelter and he expects that number to increase as the night goes on.



The Red Cross is asking people who come to the shelter to bring toiletry items, as well as any medication they might currently be taking.

Parents bringing children to the shelter are asked to remember their favorite toys or games to help occupy their time.

Pets are welcome at the shelter.
