This weekend’s storm has caused significant disruption to many services in Lehigh County including power outages. As a result, many residents, especially senior citizens, are without power and therefore without heat during this cold weather.
Lehigh County has begun moving residents from affected County housing units into the Troxell Middle School at 2219 North Cedar Crest Boulevard in Allentown. The middle school is available for shelter to anyone affected by power outages.
The Lehigh County Department of Aging and Adult Services urges residents to check on elderly neighbors and help them seek shelter if they have been affected by the lack of power or heating.
Residents who plan to seek shelter at the school are asked to bring a pillow, blankets and any medication that may be needed over the next few days.
Residents who need shelter should find their own transportation to the Trexler Middle School if possible. Residents who have difficulties in getting to the school should call (610) 633-4549.
Updated 10 AM: Originally, I had some data wrong. It is the TROXELL Middle School (Not Trexler), and the address is 2219 NORTH Cedar Crest Boulevard.
