|In the last 24 hours, NOAA has the projected track of Hurricane Isaias to have the eye of the storm track over southern Massachusetts sometime between Tuesday night and Wednesday.|
Right now, the storm is projected to be a tropical storm at that time, with sustained winds around 65mph with gusts around 75mph. The path and severity of the storm is subject to change and is evolving.
This is a good reminder to take precautions NOW for both Isaias and the remainder of hurricane season. In an article we published several months ago, the MCC highlighted that with COVID-19 also an ongoing threat, there are things you can do to protect your home and health:
-Elevate critical items out of vulnerable areas
-Bring in and strap down loose outdoor items
-Know where your insurance documents are
-Review coverages, both home and flood, for proper protection
-Ensure you have an emergency kit, including water, flashlight and batteries
The MCC has a Hurricane Center on our Downloads page for our members, where you can download many different hurricane preparedness guidelines.
Also, we have a link to a storm and surge tracker that you can also find here
We will update you as updates continue to be made available.
