Red Cross Opens Shelter in Old Westbury [VIDEO]

Cots and blankets will be provided; however people should bring their own comfort items.

The American Red Cross has opened a shelter at Westbury High School for those seeking refuge from the blizzard.

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.

The high school is located at 1 Post Ave. in Old Westbury.

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