Post-Hurricane Sandy Coordination Message #2 – Friday November 2nd, 2012 – 735 AM EDT

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. To date, there have been no requests for an ARESMAT (Amateur Radio Emergency Services Mutual Aid Team) to the region and no self deployments should occur. This continues to be monitored..
..Indirectly related to the circulation of ‘post tropical cyclone Sandy’, a line of strong to severe thunderstorms developed off of the Southeast Massachusetts coast on Tuesday Evening October 30th. These strong to severe thunderstorms resulted in a microburst in the Wareham/Onset area as well as wind damage, large hail and flash flooding across portions of Eastern Massachusetts. The Local Storm Report for this event and the Public Information Statement on the Onset/Wareham Microburst are posted via the links below..
..Also posted below is an updated 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..
..Another post-coordination message may be posted this evening or this could be the last post-coordination message posted on the impact of Hurricane Sandy depending on what other data is received..
