STORM JUNO UPDATE January 28, 2015 at 7:34am
Roads have not been well plowed. Travel in Poppy is still unsafe. Unofficial reports post 24 inches of snow in our area, with lots of snow drifting. Popponesset luckily retained power. Likely there is no need to use Community House today as a warming station but if anyone needs to please call 508-477-6755. The beaches took quite a beating with high seas and high winds. Waiting for roads to be plowed before we can get there and assess storm damage.
Thanks to our resident photographers for sharing photos -- Richard Risko and Norma Hartwell. Check in on the PBA-Popponesset Beach Association Facebook page for more community posts and updates.
FROM THE PBA BOARD (January 26, 2015 8:30pm)
WINTER STORM JUNO — INFORMATION FOR POPPY RESIDENTS
As many of you know, the Popponesset Community House is now equipped with a generator. We purchased the generator for those community members who may lose power for an extended period of time who may need warmth or power after a significant weather event. Please note the Community House is not rated as an emergency shelter, so it will not be available during any storm. However, we are preparing for after the storm ends, likely Wednesday AM, to have the Community House available to residents needing a place as a warming station in the event of a power loss in the community. Harold Cloran will make the Community House available as soon as it is safe for him to do so after the storm. The parking lot of the building will be plowed after the storm. If you have any questions, please call the Community House (leave a message as we will be checking frequently) at 508-477-6755 or call Jack Keating at 508-527-6826.
Please continue checking the Facebook group for updates as it is the easiest and fastest way for us to get emergency messages to all PBA members and residents. Also please post any updates if you are there in Popponesset (and photos) so that others can stay up to date!
STAY SAFE EVERYONE!!
