It’s been a while since we’ve had a serious storm here but that should change today.
An outer band of Hanna was expected to reach the Massachusetts coast this morning, dumping up to 3 inches of rain. That band will move, allowing for a clear day before the body of Hanna reaches the area in the evening, dumping another 3 to 4 inches overnight. The storm is about 310 miles long.
The area will see a sustained wind of 30 to 40 miles per hour, with gusts as high as 60 miles per hour along the coast, said Nicole Belk, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Taunton.
We’re under a Tropical Storm warning now. Joy.
