A long duration nor'easter — the same storm that spared Washington, D.C. its heaviest snowfall in two years — continues to pound New England with high winds, coastal flooding, and heavy snow. As expected, the Friday morning high tide brought major coastal flooding to the Massachusetts shoreline, from Cape Ann to Nantucket. High seas driven by four straight days of gale force winds eroded beaches and damaged homes. More coastal flooding is anticipated during Friday evening's high tide, but it may be less severe than what has occurred so far, due to lower astronomical high tides at that time.
