Frankenstorm coming

In anticipation of the pending Super Storm Sandy, the Hartford Volunteer Fire House (intersection of State Route 40 and State Route 149) will have the Community Room open as a shelter starting mid-afternoon Monday and going onwards as needed.

Widespread lingering power outages for Washington County are expected from the anticipated high winds and heavy rains.

The Fire House has a generator that comes on automatically during power failures.  Even though the temperatures are above freezing, there may be issues for some who are reliant upon electricity for oxygen generation, etc.
