GulfSAR DEPLOYING TO MASSACHUSETTS FOR EVACUATION AND RESCUE
GulfSAR is continuously monitoring weather conditions and the projected path of Hurricane Lee.
Current forecast models have Hurricane Lee strengthening as it parallels the Eastern Coast of the US and rapidly developing into what is projected to be MAJOR Hurricane status as it approaches the Maine and Canada.
With projected rainfalls and life-threatening storm surge, catastrophic flooding could and likely will occur. Hurricane force winds are expected as early as Friday or Saturday along Massachusetts’ East Coast.
GulfSAR is deploying to Massachusetts to assist with evacuations and to stage for immediate flood and swift water rescues as Lee’s impacts are felt. Members are arriving this morning to stage. We will provide further information and updates as the situation warrants
