All Shelters Closed from Tropical Storm Irene

 

UPDATED: August 30, 2011 9:00 AM

All shelters in the State of Maine that were opened to assist the public during Tropical Storm Irene and its aftermath have now been closed.

15 shelters were opened in response to the storm, and another 17 were on standby prepared to open. American Red Cross chapters in Maine opened and staffed regional shelters in several locations in coordination with county and local officials. Additional locations were opened and run by local communities.

The shelter effort was supported by County Animal Response Teams that were mobilized to care for pets who accompanied their owners to shelters.

MODIFIED DOWNEASTER SERVICE PLANNED FOR MONDAY, August 29

 

MONDAY, August 29, 2011: Because the impacts of Irene likely won't be known until the storm has passed and the railroad has been inspected and cleared to resume train operations, a limited bus schedule has been put into place to serve Downeaster passengers on Monday morning. 

Bus transportation operating on the schedule of Trains 680, 681, 682 and 683 will be available between these stations only:

· Portland Transportation Center, the Wells Transportation Center and Boston North Station. 

Exeter, NH Train Station and Boston North Station.  
No morning service will be provided to or between the following stations: Old Orchard Beach, Saco, Dover, Durham, Haverhill, Woburn.

We are hopeful that Amtrak Downeaster TRAINS will be able to operate on a full schedule beginning on Monday afternoon.  Trains 684, 685, 686, 687, 688 and 689 are expected to operate as usual serving all stations.   Please visit
