Why are you reporting this puzzle?

Inland it was the snow and wind, but along the coast they had much more severe issues.

High astronomical tides, combined with high winds and large seas, produced a storm surge of 2.5 to 4.5 feet along the east coast of Massachusetts.

Major coastal flooding occurred on four successive high tide cycles, resulting in the damage or destruction of nearly 11,000 homes.

The water level of 15.10 feet (MLLW) recorded in Boston was the flood of record until January 4, 2018 when the level reached 15.16 feet MLLW (3/4" higher).

Seas as high as 30 to 35 feet offshore produced significant damage from wave battery along the coastline as well as severe beach erosion.
