sailboats in storm

Heavy wind and rain passed through New England overnight, causing significant damage along the Massachusetts coast.

Over half a million people were in the dark across New England Thursday after a powerful nor'easter struck overnight, bringing violent winds that toppled trees and power lines.

In the coastal Massachusetts town of Duxbury, where wind gusts reached 80 mph, Fire Capt. Rob Reardon said : "This whole town got hit pretty hard. You can tell by just the amount of trees, the wires, the damage to houses."

As the nor'easter hammered the New England coast, the pounding wind gusts reached 90 mph on Cape Cod in Provincetown, and 70 mph in Boston. The storm went through a meteorological process called bombogenesis overnight, making it a bomb cyclone.
