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.

A snowstorm pounded the East Coast early Tuesday, bringing high winds and heavy snow to coastal areas of New Jersey northward through Maine.

Some areas of Massachusetts received more than a foot of snow by early Tuesday, where Plymouth received almost 16 inches, Shrewsbury almost 15, and Sandwich had 13 inches of snow.

More than 7,700 flights in and out of the Northeast were canceled on Monday and Tuesday.

After Sandy, A New Storm May Hit Mid-Atlantic And New England

The National Weather Service’s Prediction Center issued a warning for a possible nor’easter, which may hit the Mid-Atlantic and New England regions as early as next Tuesday.

The storm will bring moderate rains and gusty winds in many of the same areas ravaged by the superstorm.

It is not a big storm like Hurricane Sandy but it may cause more problems for both New York and New Jersey.
