Coastal flooding in MA, including in Boston, Lynn and Cape Cod, has made roads impassable.

"The flooding obviously doesn't compare to 1978", he said.

Even though the worst is apparently over, Walsh added that the flooding is still affecting parts of Boston including Seaport, Charlestown, the North End, East Boston and Dorchester. Blue Line service between Wonderland and Orient Heights has been suspended due to flooding. Water could also be seen pouring into an underground subway stop near the New England Aquarium.

Weather service data showed that the waters off Fort McHenry hit 3.49 feet below what is known as the mean lower low water at 12:36 p.m., about an hour and a half before the expected low tide.

Also, although the storm was around 100 miles off the coast of Nantucket, it had very strong onshore winds blowing the water toward the coastline. Thursday's storm coincided with those high tides, according to WBUR. The quick intensification generated a lot of wind, which pushed the water toward the shore.

Elsewhere in the Bay State, "major flooding" is being reported in Winthrop, Scituate, Duxbury, Marshfield and more.

Baltimore recorded what was likely its lowest low tide in almost three decades on Thursday, as the East Coast "bomb cyclone" storm's winds pushed waters out of the harbor.

But the biggest factor determining which coastal communities saw flooding and which didn't had to do with the track of the storm and the wind direction at the coast because of that track.

However, Frank cautioned that there isn't much of a comparison to be made to the Blizzard of 1978.

Quincy police are also reporting multiple cars flooded.
