YMCA Offering Help to Those Affected by Newport Gas Outage

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.”
