Hurricane Arthur hits the Northeast



Hurricane Arthur rained on many parades and cook-outs across the Northeast this Fourth of July.
In Southeast Massachusetts, the rains came down hard and fast flooding out some homes.
   
Arthur's opening attack on Southeast Massachusetts not terribly welcome here
"Arthur does not like us right now. I don't know how we disappointed him, but it's ok. I don't mind it."

"He's not welcome, haha."

Phil Stoeckle's basement on Washington street in Fairhaven has flooded three separate times already, as each band of the storm gusts across the state.
"We've had quite a few spells. It comes like once an hour, floods."

Several streets in Fairhaven flash-flooded.

Parts of Washington street under three to four feet after a fury of rain.
"Oh, it's coming. Him and I were actually at Shaw's, and it sounded like something was pounding on the roof."

Adam Morales took it upon himself to don a bathing suit, and help drivers stranded after trying to make their way through it.
"His starter's already blown. That's it. It's not going anywhere."

Across Southeast Massachusetts, a very real risk of flash-flooding.
And that threat not going away anytime soon.

"This is just the beginning. Late tonight it's going to get worse."
