Post Storm Coordination Message #2 – Wednesday 11/26/14-Thursday Morning 11/27/14 Major Winter Storm for New Hampshire and Northern and Western Massachusetts

Hello to all..

..We hope all SKYWARN Spotters and Amateur Radio Operators had a Happy Thanksgiving. Thanks again to all for their support during the recent Wednesday 11/26/14-Thursday 11/27/14 Major Winter Storm..
..The Major Winter Storm blanketed Southern New Hampshire and Western Massachusetts with 5-10″ of snow with higher amounts up to 13″. In New Hampshire, widespread tree and power line damage has occurred in Central and Southern parts of the state with over 200,000 people without power at the height of the storm and close to 35,000 without power at the height of the storm in northern and far Western Massachusetts in the higher elevations. All Massachusetts residents power was restored by Thanksgiving Evening. As of Saturday Afternoon, there remains approximately 27000 without power in New Hampshire per Public Service of New Hampshire (PSNH) with that number possibly being a bit higher counting other New Hampshire utilities. Utility crews from New Brunswick Canada, Massachusetts and Connecticut are assisting New Hampshire utilities with the outages..
..Lower elevation locations in interior Western, Central and Northeast Massachusetts and Northern Connecticut had 1-3″ of snow with isolated higher amounts in some locations that are up at 400-600 foot levels..
..Southeast New England sustained wind gusts of greater than 45 MPH and isolated pockets of tree and wire damage along with 1.5-2.5″ of rain from this storm system..
..Post storm damage pictures if it is safe to do so and without getting in the way of public safety or utility companies over Southern New Hampshire and Northern and Western Massachusetts are still helpful in documenting the event and to understand the extent of damage for state, federal emergency management officials, the National Weather Service offices of Taunton MA and Gray Maine. Credit will be given to the spotter for providing the pictures..
..Another post storm coordination message will follow by Monday Morning if there are any substantial updates. Below is the NWS Taunton Local Storm Report and Public Information Statement giving an overview of storm related damage and snow, rain, wind reports over the area as well as the WX1BOX last storm log issued at 1155 PM Wednesday 11/26/14 and the WX1BOX Facebook Album showing pictures of what has been received to date..
..PSNH Outage Update Information links have also been posted in this post storm coordination message..
