NEWPORT, R.I. (WPRI) — Morgan Fog and his girlfriend are just two of the thousands of people impacted four days into the natural gas outage in Newport County.
Though he’s still staying at his apartment, he’s been utilizing the Newport County YMCA to shower, since he has no hot water.
“I work a dirty job, but I get to come here and shower and work out,” Fog explained. “We’re just doing the best we can with what we have.”
The YMCA said it will be open to those affected by the outage during operating hours. Those affected by the outage should bring with them an ID and shower supplies.
