Barnstable County in midst of winter storm

The Barnstable County Regional Emergency Planning Committee (BCREPC) held a planning conference call at 4 p.m. Thursday to review the latest information on the winter storm battering the Cape and Islands.

STATUS: The BCREPC Multi-Agency Coordination Center (MACC) is in operation and monitoring the current conditions across Cape Cod. At this time, the Regional Emergency Shelter System is on standby. The BCREPC will continue to monitor forecasts and reevaluate the situation throughout the duration of the storm.

Travel is very dangerous at this time. The BCREPC urges citizens to stay off the roads and highways until crews have had a chance to clear them.
