    (NECN) - Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick says while Cape Cod may still see a few flurries, the nor'easter is otherwise over.

    However, Governor Patrick warns that expected cold temperatures will be "quite extreme," and recommends residents take precautions and to stay indoors.

    Governor Patrick says there were reports of flooding and splashover in Hull, Duxbury, Sandwich, Plymouth, Scituate, Newburyport, Plum Island and Salisbury. According to Patrick, there was one request for a rescue by a family in Duxbury, where a number of homes are surrounded by high water.

    Patrick also thanked residents for staying off the roads during the height of the nor'easter.

    According to the governor, there are fewer than 100 reported power outages, and roads, especially ones that see heavy traffic, are in good shape. He says the MBTA will function as normal by late Friday afternoon, and flights have already resumed at Boston Logan Airport; however, Patrick says to still check with the airline before the flight.
