PLYMOUTH, MASS. (WHDH) - Emergency officials opened a warming shelter in Plymouth after more than 11,000 residents lost power as the nor’easter’s fierce winds lashed the coastal town on Saturday.

Anyone without heat and electricity can seek shelter and ride out the storm at Plymouth North High School.

“Some of them are medical situations who couldn’t stay in their homes because they lost their power and they needed to power for maintaining their medical devices,” a Red Cross representative told 7NEWS. “And some are just cold because their apartments or their houses are without power.”

The Plymouth Fire Department is transporting people in need to the shelter.

Ferocious wind gusts have been whipping around snow for hours and high tide also caused minor flooding in the town. Some roads like Warren Avenue became impassable.
