More than 200 seek shelter from Sandy

Fairfield Ludlowe High School is the temporary home for more than 200 residents and their pets, forced from their homes by Hurricane Sandy.

As of 11 a.m., 214 people were at the shelter. Another five, who had medical conditions, were being cared for at the The Carolton convalescent home, First Selectman Michael Tetreau said.

Forty pets are also being sheltered.

Deputy Chief Arthur Reid said plans for keeping the shelter open are being made on a 24-hour basis. Refugees may stay or find their own accommodations before being allowed back into their homes.

Rumors that the shelter was full and that an overflow shelter was set up at Fairfield University were not true, according to university officials.

Schools Supt. David Title said the food services staff is feeding those at the shelter, using school food supplies.

Fire Chief Richard Felner said there were two dozen rescues as the storm picked up Monday night, as people who first opted to remain home decided that wasn’t an option.
