..Post storm damage pictures during Thanksgiving morning if it is safe to do so and without getting in the way of public safety or utility companies over Southern New Hampshire and Northern and Western Massachusetts will be helpful to understand the extent of damage for state, federal emergency management officials, the National Weather Service offices of Taunton MA and Gray Maine.
