City of Gloucester Storm Update
5:30 PM UPDATE: Thank you Lt. Governor Karyn Polito for checking in. Our emergency management team (Mayor’s Office, DPW, Police, Fire, and Harbormaster) has been meeting throughout the day working on preparations for this possible multi-day event.
At this time, we are still experiencing a significant number of power outages throughout the City. We remain optimistic that power will be restored soon but are waiting for our evening update from National Grid. However, we encourage anyone without power and/or heat to seek shelter with family and friends.
The Rose Baker Senior Center is currently open as a warming center. The Senior Center has power, heat, cots, water/food and will be staffed by a paramedic. If this location is utilized we will remain open overnight; if unoccupied at 9 p.m. we will close and re-open at normal business hours tomorrow. CATA is available to provide transportation from your home to the Senior Center until 9 p.m. Please call 978-283-7916 to coordinate pick up.
Be safe and check on your elderly neighbors. Thank you for your cooperation as we continue to deal with the aftermath of this storm event. Stay tuned as any additional important updates will be posted on social media.
