Governor Baker was in Harwich on Wednesday to meet with local officials in the wake to the two tornadoes.

WCAI News Director Steve Junker hosts a roundup of some of the top local and regional news of the week, including: tornadoes touch down in Yarmouth and Harwich, leaving tens of thousands of people without power. A hotel lost a portion of its roof, and the damage has got some in Harwich comparing it to Hurricane Bob.

This week's guests are Ethan Genter of the Cape Cod Times; WCAI's Sarah Mizes-Tan; Tim Wood of the Cape Cod Chronicle; K.C. Myers of the Provincetown Banner; and George Brennan of the Martha's Vineyard Times.

Other stories we talk about include: Family Week in Provincteown; the VTA and striking bus drivers reach a tentative agreement; and Edgartown bans candy tossing at the July 4th parade, creating a social media furor.  

Steve is Managing Editor of News. He came to WCAI in 2007. He also hosts the weekly News Roundup on Friday mornings and produces The Fishing News.
