Eastern MA ARES and SKYWARN members received a nice write-up on the ARRL national website describing their efforts in the wake of last week’s nor’easter in which “near-blizzard conditions and high winds” prompted ARES and SKYWARN teams to activate in Eastern Massachusetts on December 9.
The article quotes Section Emergency Coordinator Rob Macedo, KD1CY describing the damage caused by the storm. Macedo acknowledged the superb communications efforts put forth by several dozen Amateurs throughout the region.
“The quick-hitting nature of the storm tested the ability of Eastern Massachusetts ARES and SKYWARN to react quickly to a rapidly intensifying winter storm that brought hurricane force winds and near blizzard conditions to the region,” said KD1CY.
