Tropical Storm Warning

THREAT OF HURRICANE BILL LESSENS, BUT CAUTION CONTINUES

Swimmers and Boaters Must Still Respect High, Dangerous Seas

FRAMINGHAM, MA – “Based on the latest forecasts from the National Weather Service, we are cautiously optimistic that Massachusetts will avoid the worst of this storm. I urge residents to remain vigilant. Boaters and swimmers should stay off and out of the water around the outer Cape and Islands until further notice,” stated Governor Deval Patrick.  “I am grateful to all of our state, local and volunteer emergency management personnel for their professionalism.”

As the latest reports from the National Weather Service indicate that Hurricane Bill’s forecasted path will now take it over 150 miles east of Nantucket, the threat of a landfall is greatly diminished.  Nonetheless, state officials and local officials continue to monitor the storm very closely, making preparations, with the expectation that its potential impact on Massachusetts has lessened.

Although the threat of damaging winds and driving rains have diminished, the rough seas and threat of lift-threatening rip currents remain.  The Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) continues to advise swimmers, regardless of their abilities, to stay out of the ocean, particularly along outer Cape Cod and the Islands both Saturday and Sunday.  Additionally, pleasure boaters are asked to avoid the same areas over the weekend.  High seas and strong offshore winds will place boaters in harms way.  They must closely follow the U.S. Coast Guard’s warning and directives.

The Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) is the state agency responsible for coordinating federal, state, local, voluntary and private resources during emergencies and disasters in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.  MEMA provides leadership to: develop plans for effective response to all hazards, disasters or threats; train emergency personnel to protect the public; provide information to the citizenry; and assist individuals, families, businesses and communities to mitigate against, prepare for, and respond to and recover from emergencies, both natural and man made.

THE CHICKS ARE BANDED

The Bay State's resident Bald eagles and Peregrine falcons were the focus of a banding effort by MassWildlife biologists during the months of May and June. Dr. Tom French, Assistant Director of MassWildlife's Natural Heritage and Endangered Species Program, reported an estimated 39 peregrine falcon chicks at 17 nests. "Peregrine nests are popping up everywhere with two new nests at MIT in Cambridge and an apartment building in New Bedford," said French. Falcon nest locations include eight peregrine nesting sites in the Greater Metropolitan Boston area, while Worcester, Fall River, Lawrence, Lowell, Deerfield, Amherst and Springfield each host one nest.
 

MassWildlife biologists and technicians visited known or suspected eagle nest sites from Fall River to Sheffield, to the Merrimack River as well as the "core" population on Quabbin Reservoir and the Connecticut River and banded a 37 eaglets. Of 22 eagle nesting attempts, 21 were successful, resulting in the fledging of 37 eaglets, an unusually high rate of success. Eagle nesting highlights also included the discovery of three new nest sites among the towns of Hadley, Holyoke, and Lunenburg. MassWildlife has estimated a statewide total of 27 eagle territories.
 

The banning of DDT in 1972 and subsequent restoration efforts brought the Peregrine falcon and Bald eagle back from the brink of extinction in Massachusetts and across the country. Banding of the young has proven to be an important scientific tool in measuring the success of restoration programs and learning about raptor survival rates, dispersal distances, habitat preferences, and causes of death. The Peregrine falcon was removed from the federal Endangered Species list in 1999. The Bald eagle was delisted from the Federal Endangered Species list in 2007, a tribute to the restoration efforts in states like Massachusetts.

Nubble Light

August 20, 2009 - Getting up to York, Maine a bit early we stopped at the Maine Icon - Nubble Light.

August 20, 2009 - Linda Hubley - Another chapter is read in the life of Mom in her world of Alzheimer’s. Last night on our way home from Maine, we stopped in to see mom. She gets her medications in the evening before bed, so she was pretty calm and placid. I told her I’d been to a memorial service for her sister-in-law and who was there. I told her that I’d seen my cousin Philip who I had lost touch with over twenty years ago due to his moving from place to place. My cousins and their families were mourning the loss of their mom. My aunt was 89 and had slipped and broken her hip and the surgery did not go well. With the loss of my aunt, my mom remains the only living sibling/spouse alive. Mom doesn’t understand that as she doesn’t know why her family isn’t here even though she thinks most times she is only eight or ten years old and in school. It also leaves my cousin Bobbie as the patriarch of his family and when mom passes he will carry the torch as the oldest on that side of the family. He told me that was a sobering thought.

Beyond that chapter was the chapter a few months ago of having to sell mom and dad’s house. The house was an old colonial in Billerica dating back to the 1700’s. The house unfortunately had bad timing to be sold but it was unavoidable. The house was vacant, we needed money to pay for mom’s care and none of us had time to keep it up to date. A builder bought the house and barn and within days it was torn down and a new home springs from the old horse corral. It was kind of sad to see how fast it came down. Mom and dad bought the property in 1953 shortly after being married. They never moved until dad died in 2000 and mom went into the nursing home a few years ago.

If this was truly a book, it would have started out like most families, lots of fun and adventure, lots of learning curves and full of ups and downs. Soon the book will be read and the sequel will have to be picked up by our family. (above photo - mom on one of her last visits to her camp at Lake Winnipesaukee a few years ago).

SWIMMERS AND BOATERS URGED TO TAKE PRECAUTIONS DUE TO POSSIBLE HIGH WEEKEND SEAS

FRAMINGHAM, MA – State officials cautioned boaters and swimmers to stay aware of surf conditions as the projected path of Hurricane Bill is predicted to pass several hundred miles east of Massachusetts.  Even at that distance, Hurricane Bill is expected to have an impact on coastal regions.  Swimmers and boaters must take precautions given the potential high seas and strong currents expected to be associated with this event over the remainder of the week.

The Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) offers these tips for those around the water, particularly swimmers and boaters.

·         Always check surf conditions.

·         Swimmers should never swim alone, preferably on beaches with lifeguards. If you see someone in trouble, get help from a lifeguard. If a lifeguard is not available, have someone call 9-1-1.

·         Always be aware of the dangers of rip currents. Remember to never swim against the current, but parallel to the beach to an area where the current is weaker and you can safely return to shore.

·         Never turn your back to the ocean, as you may be swept off coastal bluffs or tide pool areas and into the water by waves that can come without warning.

·         Be careful standing on seawalls while watching the surf.

·         Boaters should continually obtain the latest available weather forecast for your boating area as well as U.S. Coast Guard and harbormaster warnings and directives.

·         Identify hurricane holes and safe harbors in the area in case you are caught at sea.

·         Boat owners should assemble emergency equipment and supplies, as well as all of the necessary gear on board to properly tie down their vessel. 

·         Realize that you may not be able to pull your boat out of the water.  Precious time is lost if you are searching for gear as a storm approaches.

·         Have a plan worked out with your marina operator so there are no questions or confusion when the time comes to tie up or pull your boat from the water.

 ·         Insure your vessel is as watertight as possible. Use duct tape and plugs to seal hatches, ports, windows, doors and vents.

·         Remove all electronics, valuables and non-essential items.

·         Have your insurance policies, boat registration, a recent photograph and description of the vessel, gear inventory, marina or storage lease agreement and important telephone numbers (local harbormaster, U.S. Coast Guard, National Weather Service, insurance agent) in a secure place off of the boat.

·         When you are through, help your neighbor.  It only takes one poorly tied boat in a marina to destroy an entire dock.

·         Do not stay on the boat.

With hurricane season underway, it is a good reminder to take the proper steps to ensure your family’s safety.  Ensure that your Family Emergency Kit is stocked for a 3-5 day period, your Family’s Communication Plan is in place, and you have become informed of your community’s Emergency Plans regarding potential notification systems, emergency shelters and evacuation routes.  For additional information regarding Hurricane Preparedness, go to the MEMA website at www.mass.gov/mema

Viruses Spreading in Mosquitoes in Massachusetts

Health officials remind residents to take precautions to avoid mosquito bites.

BOSTON — August 14, 2009 - The Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) announced today that West Nile Virus (PDF) | RTF (WNV) has been found in mosquitoes in the towns of Westborough and Westford. This follows yesterday’s finding of a positive mosquito sample in Boston and one from Walpole in July. Eastern equine encephaliti (PDF) | RTF (EEE) virus has been found twice in mosquitoes from Freetown.

“Summer is here and along with it, mosquitoes and their viruses,” said DPH State Epidemiologist Dr. Al DeMaria. “If you look at where the WNV mosquitoes have been found on a map, you can see that the virus is distributed in Worcester, Middlesex, Suffolk and Norfolk counties. We shouldn’t think about this virus as occurring only in certain towns. We consider it to be present in eastern Massachusetts.”

There have been ten human cases of WNV in Massachusetts during the last five years. While WNV can infect people of all ages, people over the age of 50 are at higher risk for severe disease. WNV is usually spread to humans through the bite of an infected mosquito. There was one human case of EEE during 2008; however there were 13 cases with 6 deaths from 2004 through 2006. EEE is usually spread to humans through the bite of an infected mosquito. EEE is a serious disease in all ages and can even cause death.

“When you go out to enjoy the summer weather this weekend, the mosquitoes will be enjoying it too. Don’t forget the bug spray,” added DeMaria.

Positive mosquito results from 2009 can be found on the Arbovirus Surveillance Information web page at westnile.ashtonweb.com

People have an important role to play in protecting themselves and their loved ones from illnesses caused by mosquitoes.

BOSTON — The Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) announced today that Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) has been found in a sample of mosquitoes from Freetown. This sample comes from the same location where the season’s first EEE mosquito sample was collected on July 20th.

“Each year, we always hope that there won’t be any humans affected by EEE,” said DPH State Epidemiologist Dr. Alfred DeMaria. “This positive mosquito sample serves to remind us that the virus is around and can pose a risk, especially in southeastern Massachusetts. However, we always recommend that people use mosquito repellent and cover up to protect themselves no matter where they are.”

There was one human case of EEE during 2008; however there were 13 cases with six deaths from 2004 through 2006. EEE is usually spread to humans through the bite of an infected mosquito. EEE is a serious disease in all ages and can even cause death.

All positive mosquito results from 2009 can be found on the Arbovirus Surveillance Information web page at www.westnile.ashtonweb.com.

People have an important role to play in protecting themselves and their loved ones from illnesses caused by mosquitoes.

Avoid Mosquito Bites

Be Aware of Peak Mosquito Hours. The hours from dusk to dawn are peak biting times for many mosquitoes. Consider rescheduling outdoor activities that occur during evening or early morning.

Clothing Can Help Reduce Mosquito Bites. Wearing long-sleeves, long pants and socks when outdoors will help keep mosquitoes away from your skin.

Apply Insect Repellent when Outdoors. Use a repellent with DEET (N, N-diethyl-m-toluamide), permethrin, picaridin (KBR 3023), oil of lemon eucalyptus [p-methane 3, 8-diol (PMD)] or IR3535 according to the instructions on the product label. DEET products should not be used on infants under two months of age and should be used in concentrations of 30% or less on older children. Oil of lemon eucalyptus should not be used on children under three years of age.

Mosquito-Proof Your Home

Drain Standing Water. Mosquitoes lay their eggs in standing water. Limit the number of places around your home for mosquitoes to breed by either draining or discarding items that hold water. Check rain gutters and drains. Empty any unused flowerpots and wading pools, and change water in birdbaths frequently.

Install or Repair Screens. Keep mosquitoes outside by having tightly-fitting screens on all of your windows and doors.

More information is available on the DPH website: www.mass.gov/dph/wnv. Information about West Nile Virus and Eastern Equine Encephalitis is also available by calling the DPH recorded information line at 1-866-MASS-WNV (1-866-627-7968), or the Epidemiology Program at 617-983-6800.

MONDAY MORNING SKY SHOW: Set your alarm for dawn. On Monday morning, Aug. 17th, Venus and the crescent Moon will gather beautifully close together in the eastern sky. For many observers in North America, the International Space Station (ISS) will make an appearance, too. It's a fantastic way to begin the day.
