The building is now closed, but will reopen at 8:30 am for normal business hours. We continue to monitor the situation in the affected areas.

ADAMS, Mass. — Emergency Management is providing shelter at the Visitor Center for those still without power.
Adams Police reported that parts of East Street, Francis Avenue, and Morningside Avenue are still without power after Monday's heavy winds and the Visitor Center is open for those without heat.
Police Sgt. Scott McWhirt said it is believed that the outrage stems from an incident around noon on Airport Road and although National Grid is on the scene, power has not yet been restored.
“National Grid has been advised and they have been in the area but they have been unable to get the power back on so people are losing heat,” he said. “It is only if they want. I am sure some people are going to stay home.”
McWhirt said those without transportation can call the department (413-743-1212). Northern Berkshire EMS are providing transportation to the Visitor Center.
