“… flood maps need to be delayed …”

… “until they are properly adjusted.” So reports the Gloucester Times earlier this year. FEMA finally admits, upon investigation, that they used the wrong “modeling” for the east coast. They used the Pacific Coast wave modeling instead of the Atlantic Coast standards.

Rockport challenged the maps and now, according to the article in the Times, all of coastal Massachusetts’  will have to be “properly adjusted”.

Thank you, Rockport. This might ease the burden on a lot of other coastal property owners.

Night Out: Newburyport Theatre

February 24th, 2014 | Written by | Leave A Comment

Firehouse Theater

Went over the bridge Saturday night to The Firehouse Center For The Arts in Newburyport. Annually, they do the theatre’s version of Essex’s “wet paint” auction. Seven 15 minute plays were written by 14 authors and 24 actors were directed by 8 directors. Written, rehearsed and performed within 24 hours. They call it Random Acts and it was lots of fun. (One play was done twice: different director/actors. Very interesting!)
