This winter, Boston was hit with a massive Nor’easter that left water flooding the city’s downtown.
This storm pales in comparison to other events in 2017, when three of the five costliest Atlantic Hurricanes devastated the Gulf Coast and Caribbean totaling more than 290 billion dollars worth of damage. In 2012, Hurricane Sandy reached as far north as Maine and caused extensive flooding in New York City. This goes to show that the Northeast is not exempt from these storms.
