News Roundup: Winds Leave Thousands Without Power; Shark Study Offers Little New

Eve Zuckoff
A beachfront home on Falmouth's Surf Drive sits in a pool of water on Thursday. A windy and wet nor'easter hit the Cape and Islands on Wednesday night and continued through Thursday.

WCAI News Director Steve Junker hosts a roundup of some of the top local and regional news of the week, including: a storm knocks out power to parts of the Cape and Islands, causing schools to close; the long-awaited shark safety study underwhelms many people with its conclusions; State Senator Vinny deMacedo announces his mid-term retirement; and a defaced Israeli flag draws widespread condemnation. 

This week's guests are Kristen Young of the Cape Cod Times; WCAI's Sarah Mizes-Tan; Noah Asimow of the Vineyard Gazette; Tim Wood of the Cape Cod Chronicle; Josh Balling of the Nantucket Inquirer and Mirror; Ed Miller of the Provincetown Independent; George Brennan of the Martha's Vineyard Times; and WCAI's Sam Houghton.
