Hurricane Statement
Issued: 11:30 AM EDT Sep. 20, 2017 – National Weather Service

This product covers southern New England

**prolonged effects from Jose expected over Cape Cod and nantucket**

New information
---------------

* changes to watches and warnings:
    - none

* current watches and warnings:
    - a Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for Barnstable MA, Block
      Island RI, Dukes MA, and Nantucket MA

* storm information:
    - about 150 miles south of Nantucket MA
    - 39.0n 70.0w
    - storm intensity 70 mph
    - movement northeast or 35 degrees at 8 mph

Situation overview
------------------

Tropical Storm Jose has strengthened slightly. It is passing well
south of Nantucket but the main message here is that it is forecast to
slow down and stall over the next several days. It may even retrograde
to the west a bit. This will likely keep a prolonged period of strong
winds and severe beach erosion over southeastern New England,
especially Cape Cod and Nantucket, right through Friday. Minor to
moderate coastal flooding is possible, especially on Nantucket late
tonight through Thursday night. Minor coastal flooding is still
possible on Friday.

Bands of locally heavy rain will continue to impact Cape Cod and the
islands into Thursday morning. Rainfall totals of up to 4 inches are
possible on Nantucket. Wind gusts were 30 to 40 mph late this morning
along the south coasts of Rhode Island and Massachusetts. Gusts up to
to 60 mph are possible on Nantucket with 45 to 55 mph on Cape Cod,
Martha's Vineyard and Block Island late this afternoon and on
Thursday.

On the coastal waters south and southeast of New England, seas will be
20 to 25 feet. The combination of high seas and strong winds will
result in life-threatening conditions.

Potential impacts
-----------------

* surge:
protect against locally hazardous surge having possible limited impacts
across Cape Cod and Nantucket. At Nantucket Harbor, the biggest
concerns are the Thursday late morning and Thursday late night high
tides. Potential impacts in these areas include:
    - localized inundation with storm surge flooding mainly along
      immediate shorelines and in low-lying spots, or in areas
      farther inland near where higher surge waters move ashore.
    - Sections of near-shore roads and parking lots become overspread
      with surge water. Driving conditions dangerous in places where
      surge water covers the Road.
    - Severe beach erosion. Heavy surf also breaching dunes, mainly in
      usually vulnerable locations. Strong rip currents.
    - Minor to locally moderate damage to marinas, docks, boardwalks,
      and piers. A few small craft broken away from moorings.

* Other coastal hazards:
Jose will bring large waves, possibly 15 to 20 feet, to ocean exposed
beaches across southeast Massachusetts. Severe beach erosion will
occur. Some protective dunes may be at risk of being overtopped or
eroded away. Dangerous rip currents will occur at the beaches. With
Jose forecast to stall just southeast of the region, the threat of
beach erosion and rip currents will be prolonged, likely lasting
through the upcoming weekend and perhaps even into early next week.

* Wind:
protect against hazardous wind having possible limited impacts across
Cape Cod and the islands, and Nantucket in particular. These winds will
likely linger into Friday.

Potential impacts in this area include:
    - possible tree limbs broken off with some trees uprooted.
    - Some roads impassable from large debris, and more within heavily
      wooded places.
    - Scattered power and communications outages.

* Flooding rain:
protect against locally hazardous rainfall flooding having possible
limited impacts across Nantucket and possibly Cape Cod.

Potential impacts include:
- flood waters can enter a few structures, especially in usually
    vulnerable spots. A few places where rapid ponding of water occurs
    at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage areas. Some
    brief Road closures.
- Although unlikely, localized rainfall flooding could prompt a few
    evacuations.

Precautionary/preparedness actions
----------------------------------

* evacuations:
be prepared to follow any local instructions from emergency management
officials.

* Other preparedness information:
all mariners should be in port and boat owners should have ensured
that boats are moored very securely or removed from the water.

Closely monitor NOAA Weather Radio or other local news outlets for
official storm information. Listen for possible changes to the
forecast.

The next local statement will be issued by the National Weather
Service in Taunton MA around 6 PM EDT, or sooner if conditions
warrant.

Tropical Storm Warning
Issued: 1:39 PM EDT Sep. 20, 2017 – National Weather Service


139 PM EDT Wed Sep 20 2017


1113 am EDT Wed Sep 20 2017

... Tropical Storm Warning remains in effect...

* locations affected
    - Chatham
    - Falmouth
    - Provincetown

* wind
    - latest local forecast: below tropical storm force wind
        - peak wind forecast: 20-30 mph with gusts to 55 mph

    - current threat to life and property: moderate
        - the wind threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - Emergency plans should include a reasonable threat for
          strong tropical storm force wind of 58 to 73 mph.
        - To be safe, earnestly prepare for the potential of
          significant wind impacts. Remaining efforts to secure
          properties should now be brought to completion.
        - Dangerous wind is possible. Failure to adequately shelter
          may result in injury. Move to safe shelter before the wind
          becomes hazardous.

    - Potential impacts: significant
        - some damage to roofing and siding materials, along with
          damage to porches, awnings, carports, and sheds. A few
          buildings experiencing window, door, and garage door
          failures. Mobile homes damaged, especially if unanchored.
          Unsecured lightweight objects become dangerous projectiles.
        - Several large trees snapped or uprooted, but with greater
          numbers in places where trees are shallow rooted. Several
          fences and roadway signs blown over.
        - Some roads impassable from large debris, and more within
          urban or heavily wooded places. A few bridges, causeways,
          and access routes impassable.
        - Scattered power and communications outages, but more
          prevalent in areas with above ground lines.

* Storm surge
    - no storm surge inundation forecast

    - current threat to life and property: none
        - the storm surge threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - Surf conditions may still be rough with some beach erosion.
          Stronger than normal rip currents may also be present.
        - Exercise due safety.
        - Review your seasonal plan and ensure readiness for the next
          storm surge event.

    - Realized impacts: being assessed
        - little to no additional surge impacts expected. Community
          officials are now assessing the extent of actual surge
          impacts accordingly.

* Flooding rain
    - latest local forecast: Flash Flood Watch is in effect
        - peak rainfall amounts: additional around 1 inch

    - current threat to life and property: elevated
        - the flooding rain threat has remained nearly steady from
          the previous assessment.
        - Emergency plans should include a reasonable threat for
          minor flooding where peak rainfall totals are near amounts
          conducive for localized flash flooding and rapid inundation.
        - To be safe, prepare for the potential of limited flooding
          rain impacts.
        - Localized flooding is possible. If flood related watches
          and warnings are issued, heed recommended actions.

    - Potential impacts: limited
        - localized rainfall flooding may prompt a few evacuations.
        - Rivers and tributaries may quickly rise with swifter
          currents. Small streams, creeks, canals, arroyos, and
          ditches may become swollen and overflow in spots.
        - Flood waters can enter a few structures, especially in
          usually vulnerable spots. A few places where rapid ponding
          of water occurs at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor
          drainage areas. Several storm drains and retention ponds
          become near-full and begin to overflow. Some brief Road and
          bridge closures.

* Tornado
    - latest local forecast:
        - situation is unfavorable for tornadoes

    - current threat to life and property: none
        - the tornado threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - Emergency plans need not include a threat for tornadoes.
          Showers and thunderstorms with strong gusty winds may still
          occur.
        - Little to no preparations needed to guard against tropical
          tornadoes.
        - Ensure readiness for the next tropical tornado event.

    - Potential impacts: little to none
        - little to no potential impacts from tornadoes.

        - To be safe, earnestly prepare for the potential of
          significant wind impacts. Remaining efforts to secure
          properties should now be brought to completion.
        - Dangerous wind is possible. Failure to adequately shelter
          may result in injury. Move to safe shelter before the wind
          becomes hazardous.

    - Potential impacts: significant
        - some damage to roofing and siding materials, along with
          damage to porches, awnings, carports, and sheds. A few
          buildings experiencing window, door, and garage door
          failures. Mobile homes damaged, especially if unanchored.
          Unsecured lightweight objects become dangerous projectiles.
        - Several large trees snapped or uprooted, but with greater
          numbers in places where trees are shallow rooted. Several
          fences and roadway signs blown over.
        - Some roads impassable from large debris, and more within
          urban or heavily wooded places. A few bridges, causeways,
          and access routes impassable.
        - Scattered power and communications outages, but more
          prevalent in areas with above ground lines.

* Storm surge
    - no storm surge inundation forecast

    - current threat to life and property: none
        - the storm surge threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - Surf conditions may still be rough with some beach erosion.
          Stronger than normal rip currents may also be present.
        - Exercise due safety.
        - Review your seasonal plan and ensure readiness for the next
          storm surge event.

    - Realized impacts: being assessed
        - little to no additional surge impacts expected. Community
          officials are now assessing the extent of actual surge
          impacts accordingly.

* Flooding rain
    - latest local forecast: Flash Flood Watch is in effect
        - peak rainfall amounts: additional around 1 inch

    - current threat to life and property: elevated
        - the flooding rain threat has remained nearly steady from
          the previous assessment.
        - Emergency plans should include a reasonable threat for
          minor flooding where peak rainfall totals are near amounts
          conducive for localized flash flooding and rapid inundation.
        - To be safe, prepare for the potential of limited flooding
          rain impacts.
        - Localized flooding is possible. If flood related watches
          and warnings are issued, heed recommended actions.

    - Potential impacts: limited
        - localized rainfall flooding may prompt a few evacuations.
        - Rivers and tributaries may quickly rise with swifter
          currents. Small streams, creeks, canals, arroyos, and
          ditches may become swollen and overflow in spots.
        - Flood waters can enter a few structures, especially in
          usually vulnerable spots. A few places where rapid ponding
          of water occurs at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor
          drainage areas. Several storm drains and retention ponds
          become near-full and begin to overflow. Some brief Road and
          bridge closures.

* Tornado
    - latest local forecast:
        - situation is unfavorable for tornadoes

    - current threat to life and property: none
        - the tornado threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - Emergency plans need not include a threat for tornadoes.
          Showers and thunderstorms with strong gusty winds may still
          occur.
        - Little to no preparations needed to guard against tropical
          tornadoes.
        - Ensure readiness for the next tropical tornado event.

    - Potential impacts: little to none
        - little to no potential impacts from tornadoes.
