Ocean eats parts of Dorchester, South Boston
State Police, of course, closed Morrissey Boulevard early this morning, which is what you can expect from a road built roughly two inches above sea level next to a bay. And that, naturally, meant shutting the exit to Morrissey off I-93 northbound.
At 7:59 a.m., Steve Bickerton tweeted:
Neponset Circle backed up Gallivan Blvd. to Eire Pub.
Neponset Ave is a parking lot. 15 mins from Coffey Street to Lil Peach.
Meanwhile, upbay at Castle Island, Steve Brady reported:
The ocean is slowly devouring the Sugar Bowl, and the water is up to the sidewalk at parts of the causeway. Couldn't even see a hint of the harbor islands from the Sugar Bowl, either. Just the swollen ocean. Very eerie.
