BBB Serving Eastern MA, ME, RI & VT - Third time's a charm, right? For the THIRD time this month, we have a major nor'easter headed for New England residents. This time, Winter Storm Skylar is bringing a significant amount of heavy snow, damaging winds, and even more minor coastal flooding. According to local news stations, the storm will show the biggest impact early Tuesday morning through the evening. Parts of Eastern Massachusetts and up to coastal Maine are expected to receive more than a foot of snow with wind gusts reaching 60 mph. A ‘bombogenesis’ is expected to occur afterwards, due to the rapid low pressure drop.The combination of heavy snow and strong winds is the perfect combination for power outages, therefore people should have a plan and know where to turn in the event of damaging weather. BBB is warning residents to stay updated on the latest weather forecast for their area. When you're hit with plunging temperatures and snow storms, watch out for scammers looking to take advantage of the dangerous weather conditions. These door-to-door solicitors are usually fly-by-night contractors who solicit work and often have no license or contact information and require high, upfront fees before working. BBB urges the community to research any contractor or business at bbb.org before agreeing to have work done. You should never feel pressured into making an immediate decision with a long-term impact. Some quick tips: once you've found a contractor, request proof of current insurance. Never pay in full in advance and do not pay with cash.
