, Jan 28 (Reuters) – Ocean Street in the
waterfront Massachusetts town of Marshfield was littered with
lobster traps, downed wires and chunks of houses on Wednesday,
the day 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.
BOSTON, Jan 28 (Reuters) – Millions in the U.S. Northeast on
Wednesday started digging out from a powerful blizzard that
dumped up to 3 feet of snow and led to coastal flooding around
parts the region, while largely bypassing New York City.
Snow was forecast to continue falling in the area throughout
the morning, although the National Weather Service had lifted
blizzard and winter storm warnings across New England.
BOSTON/NEW YORK (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, 20.8 inches (53 cm) of snow was on the ground late afternoon, swept higher in parts by strong winds. Boston-area subways were closed.
BOSTON/NEW YORK, Jan 27 (Reuters) – A blizzard swept across
the northeastern United States on Tuesday, closing schools,
cancelling thousands of flights and leaving residents in the
hardest-hit parts of Massachusetts and Connecticut digging out
as much as 2 feet (60 cm) of snow, though New York City was
spared the storm’s brunt.
The governors of New York and New Jersey lifted travel bans
they had imposed a day earlier and New York City’s subway system
restarted after being closed for 10 hours, but officials urged
people to stay off snow-covered roadways.
BOSTON/NEW YORK (Reuters) – A blizzard dropped more than a foot (30 cm) of snow across the northeastern United States on Tuesday, falling short of the massive predicted snowfall that prompted officials across the region to close schools and order travel bans.
High winds and heavy snow were set to persist throughout the day, with another foot forecast to fall in parts of Boston. Wind-driven seas caused flooding along some low-lying roadways in coastal Massachusetts, state police said.
