Post-Hurricane Sandy Coordination Message #1 – 10/30/12 1145 AM EDT Update

Hello to all..

..Hurricane Sandy made landfall as expected in South-Central New Jersey Monday. Her impacts on Southern New England were significant with several hundred thousand people without power and storm surge levels along the south coast of Rhode Island in particular but also on South coastal Massachusetts near the impact of Hurricane Bob in 1991..
..Damage pictures and video from around the region and in particular of the coastline of South Coastal Rhode Island as well as South and East Coastal Massachusetts would be very helpful if its safe to take pictures and video. They can be sent as a reply to the rmacedo@rcn.com email address or sent to pics@nsradio.org email address with credit given to the spotter for gathering the pictures and video..
..It is noted that the New Jersey, New York City, Long Island New York region, and South Coastal Connecticut have been particularly hard hit by Sandy’s storm surge and high winds with significant infrastructure damage noted. There would seem to be a possibility of communications Mutual Aid Team (MAT)/ARESMAT requirements for these areas, particularly New Jersey and the New York City/Long Island area but none are known right now. Seek advice from local ARES/EMCOMM leadership on any potential for Communications Mutual Aid team requirements for these areas if they develop and as storm surge waters recede..
..Below are the current listing of storm reports from the National Weather Service Taunton Local Storm Report and Public Information Statement as well as a ‘near complete’ report listing generated early this morning on the Southern New England impact of Hurricane Sandy..
