Hello to all..
***EASTERN MASSACHUSETTS ARES STAND-BY SECURED FOR ALL AREAS AT 8 AM TUESDAY AS SHLTERS CLOSE, POWER IS RESTORED AND CAPE COD ARES OPERATIONS SECURES.***
A major winter storm/nor’easter pounded the Eastern Massachusetts Section with heavy snow, blizzard conditions, and strong to damaging winds with the strong to damaging winds particularly affecting coastal areas. For further specific information on impacts for the section, see the latest post-Blizzard Coordination Message link listed below that has greater details on the event post Blizzard.
On Monday, Mike Leger-N1YLQ and Rob Macedo-KD1CY went to Cape Cod to support an ARESMAT at the request of Cape Cod ARES to support the Falmouth Shelter and Mutual Aid Coordination Center (MACC) operations working with several members of Cape Cod ARES. Over the course of the day, conditions steadily improved resulting in 2 shelters closing. As of this morning, NSTAR reported approximately 29,000 people without power versus over 100,000 for much of the day Monday. Operations continue to wind down and the Eastern Massachusetts ARES Standby has since been lifted.
We appreciate everyone who supported operations with damage reports, pictures, and snowfall reports and those who deployed during the blizzard. Please continue to send any damage photos and after action reports for the blizzard. Thanks for your continued support of Eastern Massachusetts ARES!
