With high winds and heavy rain and then flash freezing this evening there is the potential for flooding and power outages.  The Bridgton Community Center, although not technically designated as a warming center, is open to the public today (207-647-3116 for information).   The Town Office is open, most retail stores are open in the area for last minute shopping and restaurants are open when you want to take a break.   Our departments are monitoring the storm not only today but all weekend and its impact on our area and will take necessary steps when, and as needed, including shelter options.
