Hello to all…
…EASTERN MASSACHUSETTS ARES STAND-BY MOBILIZATION SECURED AT 630 PM ET SATURDAY AUGUST 29TH, 2009…
Eastern Massachusetts ARES Standby Mobilization for the Kennedy Funeral and the Nor’easter storm associated with the remnants of Tropical Storm Danny is secured at 630 PM Saturday August 29th, 2009. Thanks to all ARES folks who checked their go-kits and assisted with reports during the nor’easter associated with the remnants of Tropical Storm Danny.
The Nor’easter brought the advertised 3-5″ of rain across Southeast New England with 1.5-3″ rainfall amounts common in Southern New Hampshire, Central and Northeastern Massachusetts. This produced some urban and poor drainage flooding and caused small rivers and streams to rise to near or just short of bankful. Winds briefly kicked up around the coast with 40-50 MPH wind gusts across East Coastal and South Coastal Massachusetts and Cape Cod and the Islands. One report from an elevated wind platform at 60 feet in Horseshoe Shoals had a wind gust of 53 MPH/61 Knots associated with the storm. The winds were brief and were likely convective in nature except for some backside winds reported in some areas between 5-6 PM Saturday Evening. Rainfall and wind reports can be seen via the links below:

The Kennedy funeral also went flawlessly and without incident in Boston Massachusetts earlier today. The State EOC was operational and secured at 2 PM for this event and for the nor’easter storm that affected the area. Once again, thanks to all who supported the stand-by mobilization and thanks to all for their continued support of Eastern Massachusetts ARES!
