[7:30 AM] July 7, 2021 | Barnstable County Regional Emergency Planning Committee Monitors Tropical Storm Elsa
Are you prepared? Although the sun is shining and we expect temperatures in the mid to upper 80s today on Cape Cod and the Islands, it is important to be prepared for Tropical Storm Elsa, likely to bring us 40 knot winds and potentially heavy and damaging rain later this week.
Always #BePrepared for weather events before they happen: • Have an emergency kit ready • Watch local news and weather reports • If you need to leave your home, know where you will go. • Discuss your plan with your family • Pack essential items.
