During disasters and emergencies, the resources of local public safety agencies resources can be stretched to the limit as an incident expands in duration, size, scope, or complexity.

BOSTON A slow-moving, worse-than-expected winter storm dropped up to 2 feet of snow on some parts of Massachusetts, after it caused coastal flooding and slowed the morning commute Friday to a slushy crawl. According to the weather service, snow totals of 1 to 2 feet were common across much of eastern and central Massachusetts. Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency spokesman Peter Judge said there were reports of flooding and beach erosion during Friday morning’s high tide. Judge said flooding will remain a concern through Friday, with a coastal flood warning in effect until 9 p.m. The major utilities in eastern Massachusetts reported about 5,000 outages combined, mostly south of Boston, as of 5 p.m.
State transportation officials said they had 2,800 pieces of equipment treating roads Friday. Hundreds of flights were canceled at Logan International Airport, and the MBTA had scattered delays. Boston Public Schools spokesperson Lee McGuire said despite criticism, the School Department and Boston’s Public Works Department felt they could have all the schools open and ready for students. Later in the day, however, Boston school officials said all students who stayed home would have their absences excused.

WHOI's real-time tidal gauge and air pressure data as Hurricane Sandy passed through New England. While Buzzards Bay watershed towns were not devastated by Hurricane Sandy in the same way as New York and New Jersey, some areas did experience coastal erosion more severe than the damage in our area caused by Tropical Storm Irene in 2011, and the April 2007 Nor'easter.
On this page we show some pictures from the south coast of Falmouth during the afternoon of Monday the 29th and after the storm on the 30th.

The utility company is staged to quickly respond to possible wind damage and related power outages across it’s service area. It uses ICS standard operating procedures within the framework of the National Incident Management System (NIMS).
Personnel can be deployed as a complete team, incrementally, or individually as the incident warrants. But planned public events including parades, fairs and festivals, fireworks displays, flu clinics, and road races are a common occurrence. The MACC is designed to provide local Emergency Operations Centers (EOCs) with resources and information during major countywide or regional incidents. Coastal flooding reports came in from Scituate, south of Boston, and Revere and Winthrop, north of the city. Deval Patrick defended the work of road crews, saying they did the best they could to keep up with the snow.
Patrick would not comment on whether the school districts that opened on time Friday morning, like Boston, made the right decision.
Because of the persistent easterly winds for much of the storm, most of Buzzards Bay was little affected by the storm, particularly along the coasts of Bourne and Falmouth on Buzzards Bay. The Buzzards Bay side of Falmouth, through Woods Hole to Nobska Point coincides with the Newport , RI tide table, whereas Falmouth Heights on eastward on Vineyard Sound coincide with the Boston Tide table, and are about three hours later.

Orange painted sidewalk block were uplifted by Tropical Storm Irene and were not yet repaired when Hurricane Sandy struck. The Town of Falmouth DPW and Beach Committee have undertaken a considerable effort to build and plant dunes along town beaches and roads. Our mission is to protect and restore water quality and living resources in Buzzards Bay and its surrounding watershed through the implementation of the Buzzards Bay Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan.
The BCIMT is available to assist public agencies and non-governmental organizations in the management of large-scale planned events.
The MACC captures, consolidates, and coordinates local requirements and communicates and coordinates with regional, state, federal, utility, and non-governmental resources to deliver requested resources back to the local EOCs.
Only by delegation of authority from the local Authority Having Jurisdiction would the BCIMT assume incident command. It appears that the most severe damage from this storm among Buzzards Bay watershed communities occurred on the south side of Falmouth (on Vineyard Sound), and on the south coast of Westport (although there was appreciable flooding reported up the East ands West Branch of the Westport River). Of course other factors such as wind direction and persistence of sustained winds at the time of the highest tide are especially important in defining the extent of coastal erosion and flooding, so some areas were more affected by this storm, and other areas lest affected than the previous two notable storms.
While some residents initially complained about the dunes blocking views of the ocean, the strategy has paid big dividends in keeping over wash out of the parking lots and roads. These competing tidal regimes also explain why the normal tidal range along surf drive, only a few feet, is one of the lowest in the region.
During the night, the town bulldozed sand off the road creating new "dunes" that must be planted.
Note also the backside of the road was undercut and collapsing, and the channel across the road has filled in (not shown).
This photo also shows one of nearly two dozen people observed collecting scallops and quahogs washed up on the beaches after the storm.
Larger created dunes along the Sound did survive and offered protection to roads and homes. The raised platform was to a structure that was never rebuilt Hurricane Bob destroyed it in 1991.
