As a late October nor'easter hit New England's coastline on Wednesday, residents from Massachusetts to Maine were on watch for the possibility of the rough seas flooding their communities' roads.
Torrential downpours overnight left deep puddles of standing water on many New England roads, prompting closures, and making for a slow morning commute.
High tide occurred throughout New England around noon, hitting the walls of the shoreline and sometimes breaching the wall. The water began to recede throughout the afternoon.
In Scituate, Massachusetts, wind gusts were recorded up to 60 miles per hour. York Beach, Maine, saw gusts around 50 miles per hour.
A spokesman for the state Emergency Management Agency says water is slow to drain because leaves are clogging drains and catch basins.
There have been no reports of major injuries or death.
The National Weather Service says some areas received nearly three inches of rain.
