(WWLP) - A storm that so far has only brought light snow to western Massachusetts has caused coastal flooding and scattered power outages in the eastern part of the state.
According to the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency , Thursday morning's high tide caused flooding in Sandwich, Cohasset, Scituate, Nantucket, Marshfield, Essex, Plymouth, Hull, and Dorchester.
There's additional concern about the next high tides Thursday evening and Friday morning.
The wind has also been an issue, with a tropical storm-force wind gust of 68 miles per hour being recorded in Hyannis Thursday morning, and a 63 mph wind gust in Nantucket.
Ferry service to Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard has been cut back due to concerns over the storm.
Power outages are widely scattered, but have affected several thousand customers in eastern Massachusetts throughout the day.
