Ferry cancellations and beach closures were widespread Friday as the remnants of tropical storm Elsa lashed Martha’s Vineyard with gusty winds and pelting rain.

The storm moved up the coast overnight Thursday, bringing heavy moisture and blasts of wind as it moved through. Harbor waters were choppy and seas were rough.

By late afternoon the weather had cleared but blustery winds still buffeted the Island.

The Steamship Authority sporadically canceled ferry service throughout the day. All ferries were running in and out of Vineyard Haven.

The Trustees of Reservations announced that all its properties on the Vineyard were closed due to the tropical storm. The closures will be in effect through Saturday morning at Menemsha Hills/Brickyard, Long Point Wildlife Refuge, Norton Point Beach, Mytoi Garden, Wasque Reservation, and Cape Pogue Wildlife Refuge.

All OSV trails were closed to nonessential travel. “We’ll assess the condition of the beaches and trails on Saturday morning and follow up with potential reopenings soon after,” the Trustes said on its Facebook page.

The Edgartown parks department also announced that South Beach would be closed with no one allowed on the beach or in the water. Bend in the Road Beach was not staffed with lifeguards Friday.

“Stay safe,” the town announcement said.

The storm was expected to pass later in the day and overnight as it moved north.
