The Town of Durham will open the Durham Activity Center as an emergency center at noon on Tuesday in response to power outages due to Hurricane Sandy.
As of 9 a.m. Tuesday, 264 Connecticut Light and Power customers in Durham were still without power as a result of the storm, or 8 percent of the town.
Emergency officials decided Tuesday morning not to open the town's emergency center at Coginchaug High School, but to open the facility at 350 Main Street.
Water, MREs and charging stations will be available until 8 p.m., but no showers will be offered.
A decision on whether schools will be open will be made later Tuesday when the condition of the town's roads can be accessed, according to Superintendent Susan Viccaro.
CL&P crews continue to work to restore power in Durham, including on Edwards Road and Blue Hills Road. There is no timetable for complete restoration.
A regional emergency shelter is available to residents at Haddam Killingworth Middle School.
