Huge waves crash over houses in Massachusetts

Huges waves battered coastal properties in Massachusetts in the United States at the weekend, as the northeast still faced flooding and power outages after a killer storm.

More than 1.5 million customers remained without power throughout the eastern of the country on Sunday (March 4), and communities on the New England coast faced more flooding two days after a powerful storm snapped trees, downed wires and killed at least nine people.

The remnants of the storm, known as a nor’easter, lingered on Sunday with flood watches and wind advisories in effect until 1 p.m. in northeastern United States even as it moved hundreds of miles out to sea, hampering efforts to restore power.

The governors of both Massachusetts and New York declared a state of emergency on Saturday afternoon, following similar announcements by the governors of Virginia and Maryland on Friday.

The storm carried hurricane-force winds in excess of 90 miles per hour (145 kph), sending seawater churning into streets in Boston and nearby shore towns – the second time the area has been flooded this year.
