For the second time in as many months, Massachusetts’ coastal communities took the brunt of a fierce nor’easter that pummeled the East Coast. Approximately 10,000 Bay Staters remained without power five days after the March 2 storm dubbed the Bombgenesis. The Civil Air Patrol was slated to fly over the coastline on March 6 to assess damage. A spokesman for the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) said at least seven communities reported damage to building foundations, decks, stairs and walls, while another 10 reported seawall damage.​ He said “initial rapid assessments” of buildings and infrastructure would begin on March 6, the day before the forecast called for up to 12 additional inches of snow.
