Prince George County residents can take a shower and recharge their cell phones and other computer devices this weekend at Moore Middle School. 

            The makeshift shelter will be open from 9 a.m. – 12:00 Noon Saturday and Sunday to assist residents whose electricity has been out since heavy rain and wind swept through Prince George County last Thursday night. 

            The ‘Power & Shower’ opportunity is open to individuals or entire families.  Plenty of parking is available in the school parking lot. 

            There are no plans to utilize the school as a 24-hour shelter at this time.  However, if electricity is not restored in a timely fashion, County officials will open the facility for temporary housing of residents. 

            As of 4 p.m. Friday, there were still 1900 customers still without electricity throughout Prince George County.
