massive ocean storm surge floods New England coast (videos)

Check out videos of storm swell we had today on Boston's south shore. I used to live down that way in Junior High school days but not right on the ocean.

  These videos show waves going over the sea wall, hitting houses and flooding streets. We had strong nor easter with with winds gusting to near 70. At the height of the storm it looked like the buoys where reporting 30 foot swells offshore which at that size is going to lose some power when it hits shallower water. The swells peaked at low tide otherwise it could have been much worse.

 I am hoping to drive my camper down to Rhode Island and go surfing on Sunday if the wind drops enough. The swells and winds should have dropped enough by then to make it manageable. The air temp should get close to 40 degrees

Looks pretty bad.  Be careful out in that mess, Surf.

It's a mess there because the wind is blowing hard onshore, anyplace the wind goes offshore the surf will be totally clean

Alan Georges:
Give us a surf report when you get back.  Looks different, and fun.

Ok, cool. I think I will either go to point Judith or K38/K39. Here is the description of k38/k39 which is a more mellow longboard break inside of a breakwater

https://magicseaweed.com/K38-39-Surf-Guide/785/

"The longest left on the East Coast breaks over a mussel bed reef inside the breakwall of the Point Judith Harbor of Refuge. Known as “The Ks” these two deep-water peaks provide long, workable walls on the lefts and shorter, steeper rights at K39’s more eastern take-off point. No barrels, even when it’s as big as it gets, making it a favorite for longboarders and cruisers. S or SE swell only, lower tides, with winter NE’ers being just enough offshore."

Here is some drone videos and one other that people have taken of point Judith itself of people surfing. You can see it has many rocks
