Authorities Encourage Massachusetts Residents To Prepare For Hurricanes, Just In Case


The 2017 Atlantic hurricane season is two months old, but historically it is time for people on east coast of the United States to start paying attention to storm activity over the ocean. 

The Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency is urging people to make sure they are prepared should a hurricane make landfall nearby. 

That includes people who live well inland from the coast.  

WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with Chris Besse, the public information officer at MEMA

The record-setting tenure of Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno. The 2011 tornado and its recovery that remade the largest city in Western Massachusetts. The fallout from the deadly COVID outbreak at the Holyoke Soldiers Home. Those are just a few of the thousands and thousands of stories WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill has covered for WAMC in his nearly 17 years with the station.
