Hello to all…
Earl weakened considerably over the past 36 hours resulting in far less impact to Southeastern Massachusetts. Therefore, no further communications needs were required and the Eastern Massachusetts ARES Stand-by Activation is recinded at 1030 AM ET. Complete reports on the events that occurred during Earl are listed below:
NWS Taunton Local Storm Report:
NWS Taunton Public Information Statement:
Special thanks to Amateur Radio Operators across the section who supported operations from various local/city town EOC’s, shelters, gave SKYWARN Criteria Reports and to the RACES folks who staffed the State EOC and Regional Offices. A special thank you to Cape Cod and Nantucket ARES folks who were deployed for much of the night at Red Cross Hyannis, various EOC’s and shelters. This turned into an operational exercise and where the 2010 Atlantic Hurricane Season isn’t over and we have another 4-5 weeks to experience another tropical system before ocean temperatures turn cooler, all are encouraged to continue to monitor events in the Atlantic as they unfold.
Have a great Labor Day Holiday Weekend!!
