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.

Last week a lobsterman from Salem, Massachusetts, Dana Duhaime caught a rare lobster in one of his traps in Bakers Channel.

The 1-pound, rare female lobster has two colours, orange and black, with the two colors perfectly split down the lobster’s back.

He named it “Pinchy” after the famous “Simpsons” TV lobster.

Biologists said that a “split” lobster that is characterized by two distinct colors on each side of its body is something that occurs once out of every 50 to 100 million lobsters.

“Pinchy” will soon be on public display at the  Boston’s New England Aquarium.
