Space Weather News for June 4, 2011

ELECTRIC-BLUE CLOUDS: The 2011 noctilucent cloud (NLC) season has begun. For the past few nights, observers in northern parts of Europe have spotted velvety, electric-blue tendrils rippling across the sunset sky. NLCs are a summertime phenomenon first reported by polar observers in the 19th century.  In recent decades, for reasons no one fully understands, the clouds have intensified and spread  as far south as Utah and Colorado.  Visit today's edition of
http://spaceweather.com for photos and observing tips.

CHANCE OF MAGNETIC ACTIVITY:  NOAA forecasters estimate a 45% chance of geomagnetic activity on June 4th when an incoming solar wind stream and a CME might deliver a double blow to Earth's magnetic field. High-latitude sky watchers in both hemispheres should be alert for auroras.  Aurora alerts:

Rep. Dykema Applauds Local Individuals and


Charities Reaching out to Tornado Victims

After a tornado and violent thunderstorms whipped through the region, Representative Dykema (D-Hopkinton) and local charities such as Project Just Because, Inc. are reaching out to support the victims. Project Just Because, Inc. (PJB) is a grassroots non-profit organization run by Cherylann Lambert Walsh of Hopkinton, who connects contributors and their donations with community members in need.

“I want to commend Cherylann and all of the community members who are working tirelessly to provide for those who have lost so much in the recent disaster,” Representative Dykema said. “My thoughts are with everyone who was affected by this storm. I have faith in the entire Commonwealth’s ability to work together, rebuilding our communities.”

 “We’re here to provide support in any way we can,” Walsh said. “I really hope community members take a moment to remember that there is always someone less fortunate out there, and donating to PJB or another one of the groups that has sprung up in the wake of these events is a small act that can make a huge difference for families in the path of the tornado.”

PJB, a provider for the Massachusetts 211 assistance program, provides support across the state for residents in need, including those impacted by the tornado. The project is currently in touch with victims in the area to assess their needs. Walsh’s group is now accepting donations of goods, funds and services for persons in need. It is not currently accepting large furniture donations, but it does provide a forum connecting those who wish to donate such items with those who are in need. Donations can be made in person or on-line at www.projectjustbecause.org  .

Local woman Laura Sauriol is also running a Facebook page named “Monson Tornado Watch 2011” where those who want to help can find a list of needed items and donation drop-off locations. The site can be found at http://www.facebook.com/home.php?sk=group_156032417796074 .

The Red Cross is also accepting financial contributions for victims of this tornado and extreme weather across the nation. Visit them on-line at redcross.org  or call 1-800-Red Cross to help.

Walsh can be reached at pjboffice@comcast.net or (508) 435-6511. Representative Dykema’s office can be reached at 617-722-2210.

Individuals and families recovering from the storms are encouraged to visit one of the three recently created Massachusetts Storm Assistance Centers in Springfield, Palmer and Southbridge.


State Representative Carolyn Dykema represents the towns of Holliston, Hopkinton, Medway (pct. 1), Southborough (pct. 2 & 3) and Westborough (pct. 2).

Southborough Spared

June 1, 2011 - Tornado watches, warnings, flash flood watches, severe thunderstorm watches and warnings, sunshine and rain.  A whole bucket of weather today.  We fared pretty well compared to as many as 19 cities and towns in the Commonwealth. 



BOSTON, MA – Effective 7:10PM on Wednesday June 1, 2011, Governor Deval Patrick today declared a State of Emergency, in response to the impacts of the tornadic activity and severe weather that has produced high winds, property damage and widespread power outages in communities across the Commonwealth.

In response to this declaration, the National Guard has called up approximately 1,000 troops to assist in rescue and response efforts. Governor Patrick will bring whatever state resources to bear necessary to ensure the safety of all Massachusetts residents.

Further updates on the storm and its impact will follow as they become available later this evening.

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.

For additional information about MEMA and Preparedness, go to www.mass.gov/mema. Also follow MEMA updates on Facebook and Twitter


More will be known tomorrow in daylight but there are reports of tornados that hit the following communities: Westfield, Springfield, West Springfield, Brimfield, Oxford, Douglas, Monson, Sturbridge Westfield,  Wilbraham,  Charlton, Agawam.  As of tonight District 14 fire put together a task force to head for the Springfield area and Southborough firefighters and engine 22 was amongst the group.


June 1, 2011 - Southborough Cub Scouts celebrated their annual Blue & Gold Banquet this spring, where the boys are presented with their Pinewood Derby Trophies, and we celebrate the older boys graduating into Boy Scouts. This year Pack 921 had the Buffalo Soldiers as honored guests to present the colors as our Honor Guard. One of the Buffalo Soldiers is also an Eagle Scout, and proudly added his eagle badge to his uniform.

June 15th is the sign-up day at the Mary Finn School for new boys wishing to join scouting for next fall.

"Pottages and Pippin Tarts: The Surprising Story Behind a Typical Diner Meal"
Saturday, May 28, 2 pm

If you think traditional New England cooking is little more than baked beans and clam chowder, think again Kathy Fitzgerald and Keith Stavely, authors of Northern Hospitality: Cooking by the Book in New England (2011) and America’s Founding Food: The Story of New England Cooking (2004) will treat us to a culinary tour that traces the precursors of franks and beans and apple pie, as well as other traditional New England foods. This free public lecture is funded by the Lowell Institute. Book signing will follow; copies of both books will be available for purchase.

The lecture is presented in conjunction with the exhibition "Night Road: Photographs of Diners by John D. Woolf." Drawn to diners and other twentieth-century roadside architecture, photographer John Woolf embarked on a project of capturing images of these buildings—especially those in the Northeast corridor from New Jersey to Maine—before they disappear. Twenty of these compelling images are on view.
