FULL TITLE: Boston is drowning in historic 15ft flood of icy water - trapping people in cars and homes - as 'bomb cyclone' storm explodes over Northeast closing schools, cancelling 4,000 flights and killing six
Boston experienced historic flooding on Thursday, as a 'bomb cyclone' winter storm hit the Northeast, bringing heavy snow, winds and storm surge.
Meteorologists said Boston was unofficially nearing a water level record set during the Blizzard of 1978.
Matt Doody, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Taunton, told the Boston Herald that the Weather Service couldn't 'officially' call it a new record, but the water was hovering around the 15.1 foot mark set during the historic storm 40 years ago.
The system is also very similar to a storm that hit the Northeast on the exact same day in 1989, according to the Weather Service.
At least a dozen people have been rescued from flooded homes in Marshfield, and a handful of others were rescued from cars under water in the South Shore region of Massachusetts.
'It's up over the roof of cars. It's up over four feet,' Deputy Fire Chief Louis Cipullo said of the floodwaters in the area.
The nor'easter threatened to dump as much as 18 inches of snow from the Carolinas to Maine - causing schools and office to close and thousands of flights to be cancelled.

Fake News!!! We don’t believe it. Such experts as Al “The Inconvenient Fool” Gore and James Hansen, “Father of Fake Science,” assured us in 2006 that this would never happen.
I read an article where some liberals said we can make this stop. All we have to do is agree to a “climate DEAL”. ROTFL.
