Winter Storm Delivers Snow and Coastal Flooding

BARNSTABLE – Tuesday’s storm brought snow, wind, and coastal flooding to the region.

Cape Cod dodged significant snowfall. Mashpee reported the highest total at 5.5 inches. Brewster checked in with just under 5 inches while South Yarmouth had 4.5.

Areas off Cape saw more snow, with Plymouth, Wareham, and Kingston all checking in with 8 inches or more of snow. Acushnet also reported 8 inches.

Just over 2 inches of snow was reported on Nantucket.

The snow resulted in a series of car crashes across the region. A driver was seriously hurt when a work van went into a tree in Harwich. The victim had to be extricated from the vehicle and was taken to Cape Cod Hospital for treatment. A sedan hit a guardrail on Route 6 approaching the Sagamore Bridge. Nobody was injured in that crash.

Town Neck Beach in Sandwich was hit hard at high tide again. The marsh was completely flooded with much of the boardwalk left below water. The beach remains closed to the public after it was damaged by the previous storm.

A section of Route 6A near the Brewster-Dennis line also flooded. In Plymouth, part of Warren Avenue had to be closed down due to coastal flooding.

There were no reports of widespread power outages.
