The Town of Middletown has announced that Middletown Library is open until 8 pm tonight and Middletown Senior Center is open until 4 pm today.

The Gaudet School in Middletown opened at 6 pm last night as a warming shelter for those effected by the National Grid natural gas outage. The shelter will remain open until natural gas service is restored.

Latest Update: Folks who come to Gaudet School (Turner Road entrance) for warming and/or sheltering can expect to find a National Grid representative available to provide hotel vouchers and additional information. If you choose to stay at the Gaudet Shelter, please be sure to bring a pillow and blanket (the shelter provides a cot and a blanket). We also encourage you to bring something to pass the time while you are with us – books, games, and tables are welcome”.

If you need a ride to Gaudet, Newport Police will provide a ride, according to Mayor Bova.
