January nor’easter:  No Regional Shelter System activation required
BARNSTABLE – The Barnstable County Regional Emergency Planning Committee (BCREPC) held a conference call at 9:00 a.m. Friday, January 3, 2014, to review the overnight effects of the January nor’easter.
After determining there were no major problems or issues in any of the County’s municipalities, the BCREPC concluded there was no need to activate the Regional Shelter System.
There is still some concern about the mid-day tides in Cape Cod Bay, and the Multi-Agency Coordination Center (MACC) operated by the Barnstable County Incident Management Team will maintain operations until the safety of the coastal areas has been confirmed.
