Seacoast gets pelted by rain and wind


HAMPTON BEACH - The Seacoast took a pelting Thursday - not just from the rain but from the whipping wind, too.

In Hampton Beach, there were some close calls with some homes nearly flooding. In some cases the water creeping up to people's doorsteps.

But both Hampton and Rye Public Works Directors say they only received calls of localized flooding with some large puddles on some roads, but nothing that stopped traffic or closed roads.

One Hampton Beach resident that lives in a marsh-field says the high tide turned the marsh-land into a temporary lake. He nearly lost a canoe.

Brandan Fuller said, "It's cool to watch, but it definitely gets a little nerve wracking especially when I come out here and it's not tied anymore. If that tide had come up more that canoe would have taken a ride."

We went back to Fuller's home just a couple hours later, and the water had receded. The marsh-field was visible once again.
