8 Alarm Fire in Downtown Marlborough
June 26, 2010
- An eight alarm fire broke out at Central West Grill on Main Street in
Marlborough around noon today. Southborough Firefighters responded
along with many other towns including Hudson, Stow, Wayland, Westborough,
Hopkinton among others. The building is located diagonally across from
City Hall and had upstairs apartments. It is reported that all occupants
were able to escape the fire. The building collapsed a few hours after
starting. Main Street and several roads around it have been closed or
left to single one way traffic patterns.
Atlantic Hurricane Season Update: June 23, 2010
following information is from a recent presentation by The
National Oceanic and Atmospheric
18-23: Named tropical
storms and/or hurricanes (Annual average is ~ 10)
(Annual average is ~ 6)
(Category 3, 4, and 5) hurricanes (Annual average is ~ 2)
There is an 85%
probability for this outlook
The current surface and aloft
winds are favorable for an increase in Hurricane activity. These winds
will also contribute to increasing and maintaining the strength of a
Increasingly warmer surface water
temperatures will also contribute to increasing and maintaining the
strength of a hurricane. Ideal hurricane water temperature is 80f and
above, however large enough hurricanes can maintain strength for an
elongated amount of time in cooler waters.
El Nino has ended and there is a
possibility of a La Nina developing in late summer. La Nina conditions
increase the probability of hurricane activity in the Northern Atlantic,
while decreasing it in the Pacific. If you can recall from last year,
the East Coast had very little activity while the West Coast had several
tropical storms and hurricanes.
Even though NOAA is calling for an
active season, we must always prepare no matter what the outlook. Two
cases in point: The last hurricane to make landfall in New England was
Hurricane Bob on 1991 and the last Category 5 Hurricane to make landfall
in the U.S. was Hurricane Andrew in 1992. Both 1991 and 1992 were
predicted to be (and were) low activity years. In fact Andrew was the
only hurricane to make landfall that season.
Due to the
improvements in hurricane forecasting and tracking capabilities NOAA has
changed the Watch and Warning criteria for Hurricanes. The new criteria
are as follows:
Hurricane to make landfall within 48 hours (old criteria: 36)
WARNING: Hurricane to make landfall within 36 hours (old criteria:
Landfall refers to the Eye of the storm and not the equally dangerous
The rain hazards (i.e. flooding)
from hurricanes can be equally as dangerous as the winds. In a hurricane
the greatest Winds are on the Right side of the storm, while the
greatest Rain falls on the Left side. Even if a storm passes to the
South of New England there is a great potential for flooding rains.
Additionally, rains from an approaching hurricane can arrive upwards to
15 hours before the storm and damaging winds arrives.
small in size, can form as a result of a hurricane. Associated tornados

along a wide range of coastline whether a hurricane makes landfall or

From Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency and the
Southborough Fire Department: A 5.5 magnitude earthquake occurred at 1:41PM
local time in Ontario, Quebec border region of Canada. The earthquake has
been felt in numerous Massachusetts communities. No reports of damage have
been reported atthis time.
The potential exists for a widespread severe weather outbreak...in 2
parts...on Thursday in southern New England.
First, there is a chance (hard to predict these) that a large convective
cluster will form in the upper Great Lakes Wednesday night, then come
racing southeastward across New York state and into western New England
before daybreak Thursday. This has the potential to be a derecho, which
is a long-lived band of storms with multiple damaging wind/downbursts
within several storms in the line.
The cloud cover from that area may hang around in the morning -- if so,
that could possibly reduce risk #2 somewhat, but if #1 doesn't
materialize and it's sunnier to start, then risk #2 may be worse:
Part 2 is: The atmosphere is likely to heat up to 90 to 94 degrees in
southern New England during the day. Wind fields will be strong, such
that regular daytime gusts may hit 30 mph without any storms. Aloft,
winds will increase to 50 to 60 mph just 3000-5000 ft up in the air.
Dewpoints will be near or above 70 degrees, which is very soupy. A cold
front will move through the region in the afternoon. Some models have
the front faster, which will limit the severe risk to eastern half of
the area, but we are currently believing a slower solution which brings
the front into western MA mid afternoon and to the Providence area by 6
PM... during the time of maximum heating. Severe thunderstorms, with
very damaging wind gusts, large hail, and possibly a few tornadoes are a

Please be creative, we need ideas that make you think of
Southborough. Whether Southborough conjures up images of a historic figure
like General Henry Knox, a whimsical figure like a Dancing Belted Galloway
or a piece of nature like a Blue Heron, we want your ideas. Send your ideas
firstname.lastname@example.org. Please send in your ideas by July 9th.
All ideas will be forwarded to the sculptor to determine if it can be
sculpted within a tree stump. Ideas determined to be buildable will be
available to be voted on during the last two weeks of July. Information on
how to vote will be available by July 16th.
