Windstorm coverage day two

A flock of seagulls watches Sunday as waves crash onto Herring Cove Beach past Race Point Light in Provincetown. Rapidly moving clouds made eerie shadows race across the beach.  Tim Caldwell

- A High Wind Warning continued Sunday for westerly winds behind the huge storm 25-35 G50+. These winds were capable  of uprooting trees from still soggy ground and additional power outages were possible.

12:30 PM update: NStar has repaired most of yesterday outages. High Winds flipped a small unoccupied plane over at Barnstable Municipal Airport around 10 AM. Two people were injured in a late morning crash on Route 28 in Dennis by the Bass River Marina. Crews were just mopping up from that when they were called to a small fire in a light fixture in the ladies room at the CVS Pharmacy at the Patriot Square Plaza on Route 134 about noon. Its not clear if the storm was a factor. No one was hurt. This is the same sailboat we showed being pounded at the top of yesterday's coverage. Salvagers reportedly plan to bring in a large crane to lift the sailboat out to dry dock for repairs. Photo courtesy of Frank Paparo/NEVN.

Evening update: (final) The High Wind Warning expires at 6 PM. Breezy conditions will persist into Monday but the damaging winds are over. Nantucket Firefighters spent the day wetting down a stubborn wind blown blaze at the town landfill. Only scattered power outages were reported today and no other significant problems.

The Times reports 22-year old Jevon Pope was arrested yesterday and reportedly had two "eight balls" in his possession. 25-year old James Peters was already in custody on unrelated charged.  Agents from Mashpee Police and other local agencies together with the Cape Cod Drug Task Force executed a search warrant at the housing complex on Old Barnstable Road and recovered a small amount of cocaine along with drug paraphernalia and cash.
