HARVARD - So far, so good, says Harvard Police Chief Edward Denmark at 9:30 a.m.

As Hurricane Sandy bears down on the Atlantic Coast, emergency officials are keeping an eye on the situation and are remaining in touch with the utility company as winds pick up.

"The emergency operations center is running here at the public safety building," said Denmark. "We have met with our National Grid representative and we are prepared for the anticipated power outages."

School was cancelled for Monday on Sunday night by Interim School Supt. Joseph Connelly. Harvard Town Hall is open for business today, according to Harvard Town Administrator Timothy Bragan.

The Harvard Council on Aging will have no activities on Monday and the scheduled exercise class has been canceled.

Also the lunch for Tuesday at Hildreth House has been cancelled, said COA Director Debbie Thompson. There will be no meals on wheels for Monday but the center has also reached out to those clients "to make sure the recipients have enough food for a couple of days," said Thompson.

The MART van is off the road both Monday and Tuesday. Thompson said the center is also checking on seniors in need.
