Buried in the big chill: River of frozen floodwater traps dozens of cars in frigid Boston while wind chill dips to MINUS 100 in New Hampshire and two dozen, including a 9-year-old girl, are confirmed dead

  • Boston suffered its worst flooding in 40 years on Thursday as the city was hit by Winter Storm Grayson 
  • Images from Boston on Friday show cars stuck in frozen floodwaters that reach up to the hoods in some cases 
  • One amateur video filmed in Revere, Massachusetts, the coastal city just north of Boston, showed a large sheet of ice covering the street 
  • Experts say that a reason the flooding was so bad was because the storm hit at high tide
  • The high tide was also exacerbated by Wednesday’s supermoon 
  • A supermoon is a full moon that occurs when the moon is closest to Earth in its orbit  
  • The frigid temperatures – Boston’s high was only 15 degrees on Friday – will continue to blanket the area for the next 48 hours 
  • That’s balmy compared to the -100 wind chill that can be felt on Mount Washington, the highest peak in the Northeast United States

As Boston digs out from Thursday’s blizzard that dumped over a foot of snow and led to its worst flooding in 40 years, it was faced with another weather headache – single-digit temperatures that created rivers of ice water and trapped a number of cars.

Images from Boston on Friday show cars stuck in frozen floodwaters that reach up to the hoods in some cases.

Some car owners tried to prepare for the storm by lifting their windshield wipers and opening their trunks so that they wouldn’t be buried under snow and frozen.

But it is unlikely they anticipated that the cars would be done in by floodwaters.

One amateur video filmed in Revere, Massachusetts, the coastal city just north of Boston, showed a large sheet of ice covering the street.

According to The Boston Globe, about 20 residents needed to be evacuated from their homes. Some of them were rescued by high-water vehicles deployed by the National Guard.
