    From Sandwich to Salisbury, coastal communities are still reeling from the damage from the weekend Nor'easter.

    Meanwhile, the national death toll from the storm remains at nine people, including a Plympton man who died when a tree fell on his vehicle.

    In Sandwich, some residents were using their cars to jump start generators in an attempt to get power. An Eversource spokesman says restoration will continue into next week.

    Meanwhile, Salisbury, a coastal town near the New Hampshire border, also sustained serious damage. For part of the storm, waters a foot deep shut down Beach Road and heavily damaged Uncle Eddie's Oceanside Tavern. Officials said the force of the water was so strong, it shifted construction pilings under at least one business on Salisbury Beach.

    The Red Cross was visiting some communities to distribute food and cleaning supplies today.
