The images of the storm surge flooding in MA during Thursday's snowstorm were incredible. "The Mass. Emergency Management Agency is receiving coastal flooding reports from Salisbury to as far south as Orleans", Baker said Thursday evening.

For example, this tweet from the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority Transit Police shows water gushing down the stairs of one of Boston's underground rail stations.

High winds and storm surges are causing severe - and, in some cases, record-setting - flooding up and down the MA coastline this afternoon.

Around 12:45 p.m. on Thursday, Boston Harbor's tide reached its peak -.06 feet above the Blizzard of '78's tide, according to the NWS. The quick intensification generated a lot of wind, which pushed the water toward the shore.

The National Guard even had to be called in to rescue people from cars and homes being inundated by flood waters.

National Weather Service meteorologist Brian Hurley says mid-Atlantic states can expect temperatures in the teens while the Northeast's coastal areas will see temperatures in the single digits.

As the storm begins to severely affect the East Coast, it is threatening to dump as much as 18 inches of snow all the way from the Carolinas, to Maine, CBS News reported. It caused $500 million in damage in MA, while also leaving 73 people dead and 4,324 injured, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), WBUR reported.
