HAMPTON, NH (WHDH) — Beaches and vehicles in a popular New Hampshire seaside town were submerged in seawater as high tides peaked as winds hit the coast Monday morning.
The winter storm caused significant flooding in the area of Hampton Beach State Park after a high tide hit around 11 a.m.
Video from SKY7HD shows water spilling over the beach, rendering some roads in the area impassable.
Christine Freeman, whose car was left in the sand, said: “It was cruel, it was scary. “You know, these are old houses.”
Many residents can be seen clearing sand from their cars with snow brooms after the high tide recedes.
Cathy Mittelsteadt said she went out and found her Audi convertible flooded and on fire.
“The water came in too fast and too high. Mittelsteadt explained.
Boston and communities on the North Shore of Massachusetts also experienced floods.
