The Y, at 59 Post Road East, "welcomes those who may be affected by the current weather conditions, whether it's due to a power outage, frozen water pipes or insufficient heat in their own homes," Rob Reeves, the Family Y CEO, said in a statement posted on its website Tuesday morning.
"We want everyone in our community to be safe and to find warmth and comfort -- or a workout and a hot shower -- at the Family Y as long as these hazardous conditions persist."
The Family Y is open until 10 p.m.
Anyone who wants to take shelter at the Y is asked to check in at the member services desk near the Church Lane entrance. For more information, call 203-226-8981.
The Senior Center, at 21 Imperial Ave., will be open until 4:30 p.m. to anyone seeking a warm refuge.
