New England Blizzard Operations – Monday Evening 1/26/15-Wednesday Morning 1/28/15

Hello to all…

Well, unfortunately, those of us in Southern New England will not escape the 2014-2015 Winter without a Blizzard! New England Blizzard Operations will occur on Echolink/IRLP on the *NEW-ENG* Node: 9123/IRLP 9123 system. The *WX_TALK* Node: 7203/IRLP 9219 system has been linked in as a listen only reflector system to the operations. SKYWARN Activation has started but reporting won’t increase significantly until after 7 PM Monday evening as the storm and the heavier snow bands move into the area. Further details are available at:

Eastern Massachusetts ARES Section Emergency Coordinator
ARES SKYWARN Coordinator for NWS Taunton Massachusetts
