Transcript for Possible Tornado Reported in Washington State, Nor'easter Hits Massachusetts Hard
Tonight here, severe weather on both coasts. In the west, images coming in at this hour. A confirmed tornado now in Washington state. Destroying buildings there. While in the east tonight, a nor'easter hitting Massachusetts and new England hard. Just look and listen. That ferocious storm leaving flood waters in its wake. Cars stalled and this man getting a lift to safety from a team of firefighters. ABC's rob Marciano is in the storm zone tonight. Reporter: With howling winds near hurricane strength and nearly a half a foot of rain, the northeast is getting lashed by a nor'easter. Conditions in Peabody, Massachusetts, so severe, schools canceled. Drivers there in high water. This man carried to safety by firefighters. Along the coast, boats run aground, crashing waves up to 18 feet high, dangerously close to homes. The high waves brought all this sea wood onto the road. They had to bring front loaders out, almost plow it like it was a snowstorm. Across the northeast, a tangled mess of downed trees, crushed cars and debris. Thick trunked trees snapped clean in half. In Connecticut, own downed power lines sparking this gas fire. We periodically go in and monitor to make sure the heat from the fire isn't affecting the home or spreading through it. Reporter: Luckily, no injuries. In Rhode Island, wind and rain so severe overnight, drivers abandoned their cars. The wind still blowing here just south of Boston tonight. The waves still beating up this coastline. This is not the strongest storm they'll see this year, but it is certainly a big one. And a slow mover. Scheduled to move out even chilly tomorrow, but not before taking a bit of this coastline with it.
