Thousands of Mainers are still in the dark Wednesday morning from Tuesday’s storm.
Central Maine Power is reporting more than 12,000 outages, with 6,000 in Oxford County, nearly 3,000 in Cumberland County and nearly 2,000 in Franklin County.
The American Red Cross has set up an emergency shelter in Fryeburg to help the thousands of people without power from Tuesday’s snowstorm.
Anyone without power is welcome to come to the shelter location at the Molly Ockett School.
The Red Cross opened the shelter Tuesday night to help the thousands of people who are without power.
The shelter has cots and blankets for sleeping, drinks, snacks and meals.
Red Cross officials recommend that anyone staying the night bring prescriptions medications, hygiene products and other personal items.
They’re also suggesting people bring contact information so family members can reach them.
The shelter is located at 25 Molly Ockett Drive.
It will be available for those who need it until power is restored.
