Barrington, which has no electrical power, opened the shelter as a 'warming center' only.
An emergency shelter has been opened at Primrose Hill School in Barrington, which had no electrical power anywhere in town after the Blizzard of '13 swept through the region. "It's only a warming center," said Town Manager Peter DeAngelis Jr. "You'll have to bring your own food and bedding." But the shelter has a generator and will provide heat. The shelter was opened about mid-afternoon. It will remain open until it is not needed any longer.
