KENDALL – The American Red Cross is moving its shelter in Orleans County from Medina High School to the Kendall Town Hall.

Kendall Town Supervisor Tony Cammarata said Red Cross officials will be at the Town hall beginning at about 7 p.m. to get the building ready for residents to stay overnight.

The building will have cots, food and beverages.

“We will also arrange rides,” Cammarata said.

The Town Hall at 1873 Kendall Rd. has a generator, restrooms, running water, and a coffee machine. Local Girl Scouts have also dropped off cookies.

There were four residents who stayed overnight at the Red Cross shelter in Medina last night. The brunt of the power outages remain on the eastern end of the county in Kendall, Murray and Clarendon, said Dale Banker, the county’s emergency management coordinator.

“The east side is definitely more adversely effected,” Banker said.
