Flooding leaves mess in oceanfront Massachusetts after storm

By Scott Malone

MARSHFIELD, Mass. (Reuters) – Ocean Street in the waterfront Massachusetts town of Marshfield was littered with lobster traps, downed wires and chunks of houses on Wednesday, after a massive blizzard hammered New England.

Notably absent was much of the 2 feet (30 cm) of snow that blanketed much of the Boston area, since for much of the storm, Ocean Street was under water because of flooding from a breached sea wall. About a dozen homes were badly damaged.

Blizzard hits Boston and New England, spares New York despite forecasts

BOSTON/NEW YORK, Jan 27 (Reuters) – A powerful blizzard
struck Boston and surrounding New England on Tuesday, leaving
some 4.5 million people grappling with as much as three feet of
snow and coastal flooding but sparing New York City residents
who had braced for a significant blast.

Snow was forecast to keep falling into early Wednesday in
eastern New England, possibly setting a record snowfall in
Boston. At Logan International Airport, 23.3 inches (59.2 cm) of
snow was on the ground early evening, swept higher in parts by
strong winds.
