Saugus Fire Captain William Cross said the wind and rain that hit Saugus last Friday (Dec. 23) “an uneventful storm”
“A Nor’easter is not going to scare people in East Saugus anymore,” said Cross, who was in charge of the fire crews responding to any storm-related issues last Friday. “People in East Saugus are old pros. They have been dealing with this forever,” Cross said.
“We didn’t have any major problems. There was flooding. But nobody’s house was compromised. Nobody’s heating system was compromised. We had no emergency calls
Two sections of road experienced flooding which forced police to close the roads from 10:30 a.m. to Noon on Lincoln Avenue in the vicinity of KPub and on a section of road on Hamilton Street past the Central Fire Station.
Cross said there was flooding in East Saugus in the areas of Beachview Avenue, Belair Street and Hewlett Street. But there were no emergency calls to those areas, he added.
He said people were instructed to shelter in place in the flood-prone areas during the storm
