Severe storm hits Provincetown

Thunderhead over Sandy Neck

PROVINCETOWN – A severe thunderstorm hit Provincetown around 3:30 p.m. Friday afternoon. The National Weather Service issued a warning and reported a 63 MPH wind gust from a buoy just off shore. A beach sign was reportedly blown down along Race Point Road. Over a half inch of torrential rain fell in a short time as temperatures quickly dropped from 88 to 74 in less than an hour.
