Nor’easter Floods Boston’s Seaport, Long Wharf

The powerful early March nor'easter that slammed into New England with torrential rain, heavy wind gusts, coastal flooding and snowfall has left areas flooded throughout the region.

in Boston, the New England Aquarium was closed for a second day Saturday due to significant flooding in the area. 

The Seaport District and Long Wharf area where the aquarium is located is especially vulnerable during storms.

Fire hydrants were nearly completely submerged in flood waters.

People in the area were watching the noon high tide closely. Many were outside taking pictures, with a lot of people excited to see it.

Governor Charlie Baker declared a state of emergency in Massachusetts Saturday afternoon, effective immediately, allowing the Commonwealth to expedite resources.
