NEW ENGLAND (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A winter storm is sweeping through New England at this hour, bringing a mix of snow and rain that has some coastline communities preparing for heavy flooding and evacuations.
The storm buried parts of the midwest and mid-Atlantic regions earlier this month, then moved into New England Thursday, with high winds, snow, and rain.
About a dozen streets are closed in Massachusetts after this morning's high tide sent 2.5 feet of water into some areas.
