The Town of Nantucket is making preliminary preparations in anticipation of Hurricane Irene. We are receiving continual updates from the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency and the U.S. Weather Service. At this time it is too early to determine the timing and scope of the storms arrival. However early estimates have some weather event in this area Saturday evening through the day on Sunday. Again, this is very preliminary, but local Public Safety officials are encouraging all to start making plans in anticipation of the storms arrival. Please consider weather cancellations and potential travel restrictions when planning for travel and lodging this weekend. This information will be updated as more precise storm information becomes available. Please click on the HURRICANE PREPAREDNESS link on the Town's website for preparedness information.
