Arthur Soaks SouthCoast on July 4

Hurricane Arthur dumped about 8-10 inches of water on New Bedford and Fairhaven, and 4-8 in other SouthCoast communities, causing major flooding on busy streets and intersections. The storm also essentially washed out the Fourth of July, as residents were encouraged by the National Weather Service to remain indoors.

Route 18 was perhaps hit hardest, with as much as three feet of water covering the major roadway. Ramps on and off Route 18 to Route 195 were closed, as was the stretch of Route 18 from Elm Street to Coggeshall Street.

Thankfully, the SouthCoast missed the brunt of the storm, which was out over the Atlantic Ocean. Still, wind gusts hit as much as 30 miles per hour.
