There was electricity, but only in parts of the building.
The Red Cross doesn’t know how long the people were using the old Mount Oliver Public School building on Hays Street as a shelter.
“Anybody around here, you could ask. They were always sitting outside; you could see them in the window. I can see there’s bare apartments now,” said Teri Price, a neighbor. “Probably about a month ago, I seen people in here, now I don’t see anybody here.”READ MORE: 'Unity In The Community' Event Held In Greensburg

The Red Cross will provide the families with shelter for three days.
After that, Catholic Charities will help them find a permanent home.MORE NEWS: Community Liver Alliance Hosts 'Walk The Talk For Liver Health' 5K At Kennywood Park
