In the latest of such storms to engulf the region, Monday’s heavy rain and ferocious winds did a number on Newton.
The storm moved up the East Coast throughout much of the morning Monday and when it arrived in New England, it brought with it a wet, windy mess. Several inches of rain fell by Monday evening, when much of the region was in shambles and without electricity.
Winds whipped at almost 70 miles per hour in the afternoon, according to Accuweather, and the storm knocked out power to more than a quarter million homes in Massachusetts.
Downed trees caused roadway closures all over the city, making for a chaotic commute Monday evening.
As of Tuesday night, there were still many homes in Newton without power, according to Eversource’s outage map.
