Coastal Concerns As Nor’easter Lashes South Shore


THERE IS IMPROVEMENT FOR ALL. IT WAS PRETTY STORMY OUT ON THE SEAS. THE STEAMSHIP AUTHORITY AND FERRIES TO THE VINEYARD AND THE HIGHLINE TRIPS TO NANTUCKET WORST CANCELED FOR THE ENTIRE DAY. WHILE FLOODING PROBABLY WON’T BE A BIG ISSUE, THE WIND IS STILL A CONCERN ALONG THE COASTLINE. TIM SMITH IS LINE LIVE ON THE COASTLINE. HIGH TIDE IS STILL KICKING UP. Reporter: IT REALLY IS. SO FAR AT BRENT ROCK WE DO NOT SEE ANY HUGE PROBLEMS. THAT IS CERTAINLY GOOD NEWS. WE DID NOT GET A LOT OF RAIN DOWN HERE BUT AS YOU WILL SEE, THE C HAS BEEN RAGING. THE WIND WAS HOWLING AND THE WAVES WERE CRASHING AS HIGH TIDE APPROACHED IN THE BRENT ROCK SECTION OF MARSHFIELD. THIS PLACE HAS BEEN BATTERED IN RECENT YEARS. FLOODING CAN BE A BIG PROBLEM. USUALLY THE STORMS COME LATER IN THE SEASON. IT IS ONE OF THE FIRST TEST FOR RECENTLY REBUILT SEAWALLS. YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT MOTHER NATURE IS GOING TO DO. SO FAR IT HAS BEEN QUIET BUT IT COULD BE A LONG WINTER. WE WILL SEE. THEY JUST REBUILT THE WHOLE SEAWALL. HOPEFULLY LAST. FORTUNATELY THE TYPE IS NOT EXPECTED TO BE UNUSUALLY HIGH THIS TIME. IT’S NOT JUST THE OCEAN. EMERGENCY CREWS ARE ALSO CONCERNED ABOUT HIGH WIND. THIS A LONG DURATION STORM AND WHAT WE ARE REALLY CONCERNED ABOUT WHAT THE I WOULD AND THE RAIN IS TREES COMING DOWN AND POWER OUTAGES WITH WINDS COMING DOWN. THERE IS A CERTAIN FASCINATION WITH THE POWER AND FURY OF THE OCEAN AND STORMS LIKE THIS ONE. AUTHORITIES ARE HOPING THE LOCALS PRACTICE COMMON SENSE. REALLY BE CAREFUL, DO NOT TRY THROUGH PUDDLES OF WATER, STAY AWAY FROM THE OCEAN WHEN THE WAVES START TO COME OVER. BACK AT BRENT ROCK, THE SIGHTSEERS KEPT COMING. SUDDENLY THE SUMMER SEASON SEEMED LIKE A VERY LONG TIME AGO. AT SOME OF THE BIGGEST WAVES NEVER SEEN. Reporter: THE NEXT TIED DOWN HERE IS THAT ABOUT 11 AM. IT SHOULD BE WET AND WILD
