A powerful blizzard struck Boston and surrounding New England on Tuesday, bringing as much as three feet of snow and causing coastal flooding.

High tides breached a seawall in Marshfield, about 30 miles (50 km) south of Boston, damaging 11 homes.

Snow was forecast to keep falling into early Wednesday in eastern New England, possibly setting a record snowfall in Boston.

The heaviest snowfall was recorded outside Boston, with 36 inches (91.4 cm) in Lunenburg, Massachusetts, and 35 inches (88.9 cm) reported in Auburn, according to the National Weather Service.
