The Perry Hall Family Center Y at 4375 Ebenezer Rd. is offering free showers to anyone impacted by a power outage due to Hurricane Sandy. Residents may also charge their electronic devices and warm up in the heat, the center announced.

In Perry Hall, two of the largest clusters of homes without power are in the older portion of Schroeder Avenue and Kilbride Court, Marks said. They have been out since Monday evening, according to County Councilman David Marks.

Schroeder Avenue residents and many living in Kingsville rely on electric pumps for well water, and have been without running water for over 40 hours, readers have reported on the Perry Hall Patch Facebook page.
