President Obama wants to permanently protect underwater canyons and sea mountains off the coast of Cape Cod and a mountain chain in the Gulf of Maine. He would do so by using a law presidents have historically used to establish national monuments, such as the Grand Canyon and Yellowstone National Park. But his proposal got a mixed reception at a town hall meeting hosted by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Tuesday night.

Researchers spotted 17 Great White Sharks during a single research trip last week.  That’s about double the number spotted by researchers at the same time last year.

RI Could Get Less Snow Than Expected

Mar 25, 2014

The National Weather Service has reported that this week's upcoming snowstorm will be less intense than originally expected, with the state receiving just 1 to 3 inches Tuesday night through Wednesday morning.

National Weather Service spokesman Bill Simpson says that although there have been more storms than usual this winter, the amount of snow is not out of the ordinary.

"It's not that unusual. It's not record-breaking snow, it's not record-breaking cold, but it has been pretty persistent. It's lasting into the first week of spring and maybe almost into early April."
