Rain Events and Flooding: Emergency Resources


While we have been fortunate that the flooding in Townsend has not been as severe as in our neighboring community of Leominster, we are nonetheless facing challenges that require community vigilance. Leominster has had significant infrastructure damage, including sinkholes and road closures, and their recovery is expected to take weeks. As more rain is forecasted and Hurricane Lee looms, it's crucial for Townsend residents to stay prepared and informed.
