Red Cross closes shelters

American Red Cross volunteers have closed all remaining shelters set up in the wake of a snow and ice storm that left thousands of people in central Pennsylvania without electricity.

A Red Cross statement said the need for the shelters has passed.

The shelter at the Living Hope Community Church in Lancaster closed Friday at 3 p.m. and the shelter at York County School of Technology closed at 4 p.m.

People still in need of shelter due to the storm may call the Red Cross Serving Central Pennsylvania at 866-311-3832.
