Elkins Fire Department Offers Shelter, Food to Residents Following Hurricane Sandy

Posted: Updated:

Residents are still using the shelters in Randolph County although the numbers are down.

Volunteers at the Elkins Fire Department shelter said people seem more interested in meals than shelter.

They said the shelters will remain open until at least Sunday and that beds are available to people in need.

"So we'll probably start to gear down," said Michael McRae, shelter volunteer. "Now if something should happen between now and then, of course we'll stay open."

McRae said the volunteers can provide take out meals, to be delivered to people who can't leave their homes but not for people coming into the shelter.
