(NECN: Julie Loncich, Scituate, Mass.) - Aside from the biting wind, things are fairly serene in Scituate, Mass. Saturday afternoon. The harbor is calm, but under the snow debris the water brought up with it can be seen.

Oceanside Drive and several other neighborhoods in Scituate are still flooded. The situation in Scituate is difficult because of the amount of snow coupled with the fact that many are without power.

Erosion was a big concern Saturday morning and it came to fruition when the high tide came over the sea wall, flooding neighborhoods, many of which have been evacuated.

NECN's Julie Loncich has the complete story.
