CAPE COD – Recovery efforts continue after the major nor’easter that blasted through. Damage is still being assessed but heavy beach erosion has closed Nauset Beach in Orleans. Cape Cod National Seashore posted this video of surf at Nauset Light Beach in Eastham where they say the newly constructed trail held up through the storm:

There are still road closures in some area as utility poles are still being replaced. Falmouth Police report the intersection of Brick Kiln Road and Sandwich road may remain closed for another 12 hours. Brick Kiln Road between Gifford Street and Service Road is also still closed. Officials remind motorists not to drive past blocked off area for your own safety.

As of 8 AM about 35,000 Eversource customers were still without power. CWN will update the storm in this article through the day.
