Latest predicted track of Arthur. Click image to go to National Hurricane Site

BARNSTABLE – The Barnstable County Regional Emergency Planning Committee (BCREPC) held a conference call at 1:00 p.m. Wednesday, July 2, 2014, to discuss Tropical Storm Arthur.

 

Current forecasts indicate that Tropical Storm Arthur does not appear to pose a threat to Cape Cod and the Islands either through strong winds or storm surge over Thursday or Friday.

 

The BCREPC is closely monitoring the storm and given the current forecast does not anticipate activating the Regional Shelter System. If conditions change, the BCREPC will re-evaluate the situation.

 

The National Weather Service states there is a risk of ocean swells increasing to 10 to 15 feet along southern and southeastern coastal waters. Increased swells raise the risk of rip currents in the Saturday timeframe. Beachgoers should be aware of the rip current risk. For more information on rip currents visit http://www.ripcurrents.noaa.gov/

 

For information about preparedness and sheltering visit the Barnstable County REPC website at www.bcrepc.org. Follow the BCREPC on Twitter @bcrepc.

 

Additional information on preparedness is available from the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) at www.mass.gov/mema or the FEMA website at www.ready.gov or call 2-1-1. For specific local information, citizens should contact the emergency management office in their town.

Town of Provincetown fireworks postponed, parade cancelled

PROVINCETOWN - Current tracking forecasts Tropical Storm Arthur well offshore, however the “cone of error” still includes the Outer Cape so the town will continue to monitor over time. Although any storm impacts to Provincetown at this time appear to be minimal, rain is anticipated on Friday July 4th and therefore the fireworks celebration has been postponed to Saturday, July 5, 2014 at its regular time of 9pm. The weather is expected to clear up early Saturday and be ideal for fireworks viewing.

 

The July 4th parade scheduled for Friday at 11:00 am has been cancelled.

 

Any other updates will be posted to the towns website.
