Mass. governor tours areas hard hit by blizzard

Posted: Updated:

SCITUATE, Mass. (AP) — Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick called the amount of debris and rocks tossed onto Scituate's waterfront roads by the weekend storm "extraordinary."

The governor on Monday met with officials in some of the towns hardest hit by the storm, starting in Scituate and Marshfield. He was also scheduled to visit Yarmouth later Monday.

Scituate was hit hard, with seawater flooding coastal roads and some residents evacuated.

The governor described seeing downed trees and utility poles snapped in two.

He urged residents using generators to properly vent them to avoid being overcome by carbon monoxide.

He also addressed the response of utilities, which have come under sharp criticism for previous storms. He says he'd be interested in hearing the utilities' thoughts about burying power lines, an expensive proposition.

He also talked about replacing and rebuilding seawalls.
