When this edition went to press on Tuesday, Sept. 12, town government was encouraging residents to prepare for the offshore arrival of Hurricane Lee.
“While it’s still too early for forecasters to predict the exact impacts to our area from Hurricane Lee, it is becoming increasingly likely that Provincetown will experience some strong wind and heavy rain this weekend,” town officials wrote. “Regardless of the severity of Hurricane Lee’s impacts this weekend, it’s important to be prepared.”
Officials asked residents to sign up for the public alerts system online at alerts.provincetown-ma.gov. The town also recommended gathering supplies to prepare for an extended power outage, including flashlights, batteries, blankets, bottled water, and food that does not require refrigeration.
“Food will stay fresh for 36 to 48 hours in a full fridge; 24 hours in a half-filled one,” according to the town’s website.
The alert also recommended that residents lay in medications and personal care items. Boat owners were advised to remove boats from the harbor.
“Provincetown’s boat ramp is only usable about two hours before and after high tide. There are hundreds of boats that may be required to be removed from the harbor,” the notice says.
Further tips from the Mass. Emergency Management Agency include making copies of important documents, considering pets’ needs during an extended emergency, and taking photos or videos of any property damage as it occurs to help with insurance claims.
