Baker to Visit Blizzard-Damaged Towns

Two-day blizzard left up to three feet of snow in some Mass. communities

Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker is scheduled to visit some of the areas hit hardest by the two-day blizzard that left up to three feet of snow in some communities.

After stopping by the state Transportation Department operations center in Boston on Wednesday morning, Baker and Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito are expected to head to the South Shore town of Scituate.

There they will meet with town officials at town offices at 12:30 p.m. to discuss the storm's impact. The seaside town regularly suffers from coastal flooding during major storms.

The governor and lieutenant governor are also scheduled to visit neighboring Marshfield, where a 50-foot section of seawall was washed away in the Green Harbor neighborhood, damaging a vacant home.

That meeting with town officials is scheduled for 2 p.m.
