Hurricane Sandy Update and Photos
The On The Water office in Falmouth, Massachusetts was up and running Tuesday morning as most of Cape Cod got throughSandy in relatively good shape. However, many coastal communities from down through were much less fortunate. Our thoughts and prayers are with those who are dealing with loss in the wake of what was truly a historic, devastating storm.
We are slowly beginning to hear back from many of our advertising partners, contributors, and subscribers along the coast. Many have sustained property damage, but thankfully the loss of life in the Northeast was remarkably low for such a devastating storm. It’s worth acknowledging what turned out to be incredibly accurate predictions by meteorologists at NOAA and the work of local and regional meteorologists who, while being accused by many of over-hyping the storm, undoubtedly helped save lives by encouraging preparation for worst-case scenarios — which unfortunately for some, turned out to be a reality.

As we learn how coastal marinas, tackle shops, and headboats are recovering from the storm, we’ll share that information through our weekly Fishing Forecast. We’ll also try to update you over the next few weeks on how boat launches, beaches, piers, inlets and other popular fishing locations were affected by the storm. If you have any updates or photos to share, please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org, or share via Facebook or Twitter.
