The Atlantic reclaims its eponymous street; Fort Point becomes the Inundation District
Finn shows us the rising floodwaters on Atlantic Avenue at Long Wharf., around 11:30 a.m.
Earlier, he watched police blocking off Atlantic Avenue - which also flooded in the January storm:
Aquarium station on the Blue Line is shut, trains stopped stopping there:

Dave Adams shows us the Inundation District next to GE's new headquarters site in Fort Point:
He reports A Street under Summer was also flooded.
Like the job UHub is doing? Consider a contribution. Thanks!
The opportunities are endless
Atlantic Avenue is under the Atlantic! Christopher Columbus sails again! Seaport Boulevard is at sea! Aquarium is full of water!
Love that the Guv and Sec were talking about infra in Metrowest
While Boston was underwater due to poor infra. Meanwhile, reinforcing Aquarium's headhouse after the last storm wasn't an emergency, but building a private $100,000 kitchenette and bathroom at MassDOT was. wtf
Wonder if the cameraman will be able to get back to Needham ...
We're here at Long Wharf with a live shot of our umpty thousand dollar van being destroyed by seawater.
"Hey boss, yea the shots
"Hey boss, yea the shots arent dramatic enough. So I was thinking...."
Who are all these news operations racing against? You're the (expletive) news. I'm going to watch whether you stand in the floodwater or not.
And I'm NOT going to watch your coverage
Regardless of what insanely immature gimmicks you decide to pull.
I wonder if it's actually
I wonder if it's actually taking damage yet. The engine is probably still fine...
North End Waterfront
Looks like they had to row row tow that truck:
So much for those sandbags, huh...
It may be the sandbags are
It may be the sandbags are working, but they can't let people in because sandbags are blocking the door. :-)
(Or they don't want people exiting onto a flooded road.)
the water is getting into to Aquarium Station somehow and thus it is closed.
The entry looks to be well sealed
Sealing the entry keeps sea water out of the entry ... and the escalators and such.
I think the problem is that they can't sandbag a zillion leaks through the brick walks and the soil in the surrounding area and into to tunnel.
Anyone want to meet for lunch at the BPDA Waterfront Cafe?
Oh true, I'd missed that shot
Oh true, I'd missed that shot of the indoor rain. :-)

Aquarium station is open again
Although the Atlantic Avenue entrance (the one by the Marriott) remains closed.
