    The heavy rains from Thursday's storm caused flooding in numerous Massachusetts cities including Billerica and Maynard.

    In Maynard, the Assabet River continued to rise due to the heavy rains. The Concord River in Billerica is also swelling, spilling over its banks after Thursday’s heavy rain.

    Residents who live along the river are used to the area flooding. They say the only way to brave the storm is to be prepared and put in pumps.

    “You can take your canoe, kayak, or whatever type of boat you have from here to Sudbury,” said Rusty Simpson from Billerica.
