Post Blizzard Coordination Message #1 – Thursday 2/9/17 Blizzard of 2017

Hello to all…

..For the fifth year straight, a blizzard has impacted a portion of Southern New England with 10 locations meeting blizzard criteria as defined by the National Weather Service. At the height of the storm, over 57,000 people were without power centered across Cape Cod and the Islands and to a lesser extent Southeast Plymouth County Massachusetts from wind gusts as high as 70 MPH and wet snow causing significant pockets of tree and wire damage in this area. Thundersnow was reported for a widespread area across Southern New England and over a sustained period of time with even lightning damage reported in a couple locations in Rhode Island. A widespread snowfall of 10-19″ was recorded across the region with minor coastal flooding recorded on the Thursday Morning high tide cycle..
..For those that may still have pictures and videos, we would welcome them for the historical record of this blizzard. They can be sent as a reply to this email, via the WX1BOX Facebook and Twitter feed, or to the pics@nsradio.org email address. Credit will be given to the SKYWARN Spotter/Amateur Radio Operator or agency for the photos and/or videos unless otherwise indicated. Due to the active winter weather pattern, this is likely to be the only post coordination message on this blizzard though the Facebook Album could be updated with photos over the course of the week..
..Summary Local Storm Reports of damage and coastal flooding and wind measurements, a Public Information Statement summary of snowfall and wind measurements, the master report log at the WX1BOX Amateur Radio desk of NWS Taunton and a link to a Facebook Album of damage and storm photos are listed below..
