Rain, wind slam region

North Shore mostly escapes snow in winter's first big storm


Beverly’s beaches got pounded, but there was little reported damage.

An official in Danvers said they also were fortunate to be inland and escape any serious problems. The police did field scattered reports of downed tree limbs, and the state sent a crew to fix the traffic lights at routes 62 and 128 after the wind skewed them, an officer said.

Municipal officials around the region hope a potential weekend storm passes by without doing any damage.

“I wouldn’t want to see another rainstorm for a few days with how much rain we got,” said Michael Collins, public services commissioner in Beverly.
