BARNSTABLE, Mass. (AP) — Officials on Cape Cod say they’ve opened shelters for people who need to seek refuge from the blizzard that’s expected to bring big snow totals to the region.

Shelters are opening at high schools in Sandwich, South Yarmouth, Eastham and Falmouth. All of them accept animals.

A flood warning is in effect and as much as 2 feet of snow could fall.

The Steamship Authority has also now suspended all ferry service between Nantucket and Hyannis and between Martha’s Vineyard and Woods Hole. It might not resume till Sunday, but passengers should check the authority’s website.
