While Watertown may not have suffered like coastal areas of Massachusetts, the effects of Hurricane Sandy could be felt and seen around town on Monday.
Dozens of trees fell around, many taking out power lines and others blocking streets in town.
One tree on Templeton Parkway fell on a house, and a car. The tree had hit wires, however, and started a fire. Rose Reggio, the 87-year-old woman who lives in the second floor apartment into which the tree crashed into, began to pray to the rosary after smoke began to come into her home, the Boston Globe reports.
The fire started when the tree fell onto an 8,000-volt power wire, which ignited the tree and the house, Watertown Fire officials told the Globe. Reggio escaped injury.
Another driver, on Summer Street, got trapped in his car as drove near Mt. Auburn Street.
Trees fell across Russell Avenue, Highland Avenue and Columbia Street, to name a few.
When the rain started falling, some areas had problems with street flooding, including Warren Street and along Watertown Street.
More than 800 customers lost power in town, according to the NSTAR outage report.
School will be closed Tuesday, for the second day in a row, due to Hurricane Sandy.
