Rain, rain, go away… but unlike the nursery rhyme, most of us do NOT want it to come again another day.
According to capecodweather.net, the last storm produced rainfall of more than 10 inches over some parts of Massachusetts. Some rainfall totals for Cape Cod were, on average, low at:
Yarmouth Port (CapeCodWeather.Net): 3.73 inches
South Dennis: 4.21 inches
Hyannis: 2.85 inches
Provincetown: 3.43 inches
Chatham: 2.15 inches
The rain is bringing severe flooding to areas north and west of Cape Cod, with totals greater than 7 inches reported and more rain to come. We’ve all heard the stories on the news about Wellesley’s rivers flooding local neighborhoods.
Sump pumps throughout towns in and around Winchester and Boston, to name a few, are working overtime and barely keeping up. Large waves are also causing coastal flooding along the eastern shore board, in addition to the erosion of our beaches. It seems like it’s never going to end.
We are water logged throughout Massachusetts and it’s not just an inconvenience, it’s an outright hazard… a FLOODING hazard.
Are you protected if these flooding rainwaters come knocking at your door? Spring is here and we all know Massachusetts’ springs are wet, wet, wet.
