Red Cross opens shelters in Dorchester and Berkeley Counties due to winter storm

Posted: Updated:
As the winter weather affects the Lowcountry, the American Red Cross has opened several shelters across the region. They have worked with emergency offices in Dorchester and Berkeley county to open shelters for protection from the freezing rain and cold temperatures. 

The following shelters opened Wednesday evening and will remain open as long as needed.

·         Berkeley Middle School at 320 North Live Oak Drive, Monks Corner

·         Cain Bay Middle School at Cane Bay Blvd, Summerville

·         Summerville High School at 1101 Boone Hill Road, Summerville

The Red Cross encourages anyone coming to an emergency shelter to bring the following items for each member of their family: prescription and emergency medications, extra clothing, pillows, blankets, hygiene supplies, important documents and other comfort items. It’s also important not to forget special items for children, such as diapers, formula and toys, and other items for family members who have unique needs.
