Chatham keeping an eye on North and South Beach for breaks.

Heavy Snowfall Underway
Updated 1/26 at 6:30 p.m.
Snow is now falling heavily across the region, making travel dangerous. Given the rate of snowfall, crews will have difficulty keeping roadways clear. A statewide ban on non-essential travel is in place starting at midnight.
People who don’t want to ride out the storm alone are encouraged to go to a regional storm shelter established at the Cape Cod Tech school in Pleasant Lake. People with pets are also welcome. Learn more.
As the winds ramp up, Chatham officials are keeping a close eye on east-facing beaches. Highway department crews dumped sand at the Strong Island town landing early Monday to stave off erosion that’s expected to be heavy during Tuesday’s early morning high tide.
Coastal Resources Director Ted Keon said officials are also watching North Beach Island, where two camps remain, and South Beach for likely washovers and possible breakthroughs.
