DORCHESTER, MA (WHDH) - Strong winds and heavy rains wreaking havoc in Massachusetts is leaving damages in many cities and towns.
Morrissey Boulevard in Dorchester, which is prone to flooding, collected water throughout the morning. Drivers took caution in the area as the puddles continued to grow on the roadway.
High tide would have led to additional flooding; however, this occurred at 3:30 a.m.
The Pike westbound in the Allston area, right before the Commonwealth Avenue bridge, flooded, which caused officials to close the two right lanes.
Storrow Drive eastbound also experienced flooding just after the Longfellow Bridge. There is a risk of additional flooding coming back to this area.
Drivers are encouraged to take it slow on the road and to leave earlier than usual to make it to their destinations on time.
Strong winds from the storms are also causing destruction as trees and branches topple down.
In Worcester Tuesday evening, a large tree came crashing down on a car, leaving heavy damage. The same thing happened in Brookline, where a large branch crushed another car.
In Hanson, a tree fell onto a home, leaving a large hole in the roof.
