What can you expect at a shelter?

Shelters provide a refuge of last resort.  There will be very little privacy and conditions might be crowded. The Town of Southold does not provide food or water, so food will be very scarce. Depending on the shelter there may not be showers or bedding available. Based on this prepare accordingly by bringing your own supplies which includes your emergency supplies kit.
