Wellfleet Police/CWN

Wellfleet: Tree down at 100 Coles Neck Road

Eastham: Police report that due to the heavy rain, there are multiple flooded roadways in Eastham right now. Please stay off of the roadways if possible and use extreme caution is you must travel. Eastham Police, Fire, and DPW are out right now identifying the problem areas and attempting to remedy those issues. We are expecting the rain to let up within the next hour and expect a quick improvement in road condition after that. A portion of Samoset Road, in the area of Great Pond Road and Lawton Road, is currently closed due to a tree falling into electrical wires. Due to the heavy rain and wind at the current time, this may be a delayed repair. Please avoid travel on Samoset Road at this time.

Chatham: Significant flooding in low lying areas and along roadways throughout town. Leave yourself some extra time on the roads this morning and take it slow.

Falmouth: Falmouth DPW asks people to please avoid any unnecessary travel this morning so they can work to reopen roadways blocked by downed tree limbs and flooding conditions from the overnight storm. Your assistance is greatly appreciated. Please remember to report power outages directly to your utility company and that 911 should be for emergency use only.
