Still Recovering, Mass. Coast Prepares for Another Nor'easter

As people along the Massachusetts coast continue cleaning up the wreckage from Friday's nor'easter, another lurks around the corner.

The sun was out Monday in Scituate, a pleasant respite before stormy conditions are expected to return Wednesday.

"We just did a lap around town and it's just crazy how all these houses are basically destroyed," said Scituate resident Megan Russo.

In Duxbury, cellphone footage Monday showed a driver being rescued after his car took on too much water on Plymouth Avenue.

"Someone went down with a kayak, got him to safety," neighbor Steve Lalli said.

He wasn't hurt, but his vehicle wasn't so lucky.

"If you look down there, you could see the headlights," Lalli explained. "The car is stuck in probably three to four feet of water."

Power was slowly being restored to the hardest-hit areas, but it has been a slow process. Gov. Charlie Baker said Monday that the state intends to seek federal disaster assistance after last week's storm caused extensive damage along the coast.
