BOSTON – Today, Governor Charlie Baker joined Senator Vinny deMacedo, Senator Julian Cyr, Representative Sarah Peake, Representative Will Crocker, Representative Randy Hunt, Representative Tim Whelan, utility representatives and municipal officials from Barnstable County to discuss the impact of the most recent nor’easter at the Barnstable County Multi-Agency Coordination Center and to thank first responders for their efforts throughout the storm.

 

The most recent nor’easter has left hundreds of thousands of homes without power, dropped over two feet of snow in parts of the Commonwealth and knocked down trees and wires in several communities. Southeastern MA, especially Plymouth County, Southern Bristol County, the Cape and Islands, continue to experience significant power outages due following heavy wet snowfall and damaging winds.

 

Residents in need are encouraged to call 2-1-1 to identify their nearest shelter or warming center.

 

EOCs are actively working to clean up communities throughout the Commonwealth. Resource requests and storm related questions should be directed to MEMA’s Regional EOCs, or to the SEOC through MEMA’s 24/7 Communications Center at (508) 820-2000.
