– The town is on high alert after five large sharks, possibly great whites, were spotted trolling the waters close to Monomoy National Wildlife Refuge Thursday afternoon.
Town and state officials have issued warnings to the public urging people to avoid swimming where seals congregate. Town officials are expected to decide Friday whether further measures, such as beach closures, are necessary, said Lisa Capone, press secretary for the state Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs.
