The slow-moving post-tropical storm was well south of Nantucket Tuesday after lashing the Vineyard with wind and rain on Labor Day. Ferries are operating again, but rough surf is expected through mid-week.

With active hurricane season underway, Martha's Vineyard emergency managers are keeping a close watch on forecasts. And with no major hurricanes since Bob 25 years ago, the Vineyard is overdue for another.

Before Hurricane Bob made landfall 25 years ago Friday, Islanders stocked up on ice and batteries, secured their boats and turned on their radios.

Drenching rains and gale-force winds marked the start of the weekend, but forecasters and emergency managers breathed a little easier over the powerful hurricane churning through the southern Atlantic.

A recent round of grants will help the Wampanoag Tribe of Gay Head (Aquinnah) manage and restore more than 230 acres of land affected by the 2010 hurricane, including the herring run between Menemsha and Squibnocket Ponds.
The Vineyard was lashed with wind and drenching rain and ferries were cancelled Friday evening as Hurricane Arthur passed offshore. By daybreak Saturday the storm had passed. Fourth of July festivities will be held in Edgartown tonight.
