Washington D.C. (PRWEB) January 29, 2015
After a devastating blizzard in the Northeast which was deeming by Twitter as #Snowmageddon2015, several homes in the Massachusetts were destroyed as a result of the coastal flooding, strong winds and snowfall. According to a CNN report on January 28th, 2015, in the town of Marshfield, MA, the storm managed to take down the existing seawall that stood over 50 feet tall and flood numerous homes. The damage to these coastal homes was bad enough to declare two of the homes as condemned and inhabitable. Governor Charile Baker even stated that Massachusetts “had record-breaking snowfall in many parts [of the state].” Residents of Marshfield are banding together to help one another in these tough times.
