PHOTOS: Monster storm creates waves the size of houses

Sunday, March 4, 2018, 2:27 PM - Seawater continues to pound homes along the shoreline of Massachusetts as a powerful nor'easter churns in the Atlantic.

As of Sunday afternoon, over 1.5 million people in the U.S. northeast are still without power, with at least nine deaths reported.

In Boston, the first flood surge came at extreme high tide, which occured shortly after 11 a.m. EST Saturday, according to Reuters.

This is the second time this year parts of the city have flooded, with footage showing waves the size of houses crashing onshore.

Residents in the city's coastal suburbs who had evacuated their homes during the morning floods were told to not return until the storm passed.

Wind gusts topping 113 km/h were recorded, which contributed to the flooding, power outages and downed trees.

While the massive system is located well south of Nova Scotia, storm surge warnings remain in effect Sunday for areas along the Atlantic coastline, including Halifax.

During high tide Sunday night, "waves and surf will combine with higher than normal water levels to cause some coastal flooding and possible infrastructure damage in vulnerable areas," Environment Canada highlights.
