And about 70 miles to the north of Nantucket island, the scene isn’t much different. The street is barely visible due to the floodwater.

Not only is coastal flooding an issue for the coast, but the winds recorded have reached hurricane strength. A Category 1 Hurricane has winds of at least 74 miles per hour.

 

Check out some of these statistics from this storm:

Rain, snow, high winds, and coastal flooding are causing power outages and travel disruptions. Even train service is being affected.

The National Weather Service in Boston said that it recorded its third highest crest on record Friday morning as the Nor’easter slammed the city. The tide is expected to be even higher Friday night.
