A nor’easter expected to slam the Massachusetts coast on Tuesday will bring heavy snow, potential flooding, and strong winds to already battered towns that were struck by two powerful storms just last week.
“A third storm in 10 days is challenging, but we are preparing for it,” Scituate Fire Chief John Murphy said. “It looks like more of a snow event than a coastal flooding — [ high snowfall] is going to be a challenge for everyone. Schools will be out, and hopefully people will stay home for the day.”
Tuesday’s storm is projected to bring 18 to 24 inches of snow to Cape Cod and the South Shore, along with wind gusts up to 65 miles per hour. Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency has also issued coastal flood advisories and warnings for much of the region.
Murphy said one of the largest problems Scituate will face is snow accumulation, since debris and sand from the last two storms have been cleared to the sides of road ways. (read more)
