Hampton Fire Department reports 'uneventful' night with two feet of snow
Firefighters made a few runs early on, but Silver said they “never went anywhere” after midnight.
“People actually stayed home, which was a good thing,” he said.
While gusts were strong, they created few power problems on the Seacoast.
Public safety officials are keeping a close eye on the potential for coastal flooding at the time of this morning’s high tide around 10 a.m.
Forecasters are calling for a 10-foot tide with a 1- to 3-foot surge.
"I think we’re going to see flooding in the usual areas," he said.
Island Path and areas along Ashworth Avenue tend to be the hardest hit, he said.
Hampton officials have no plans to close roads in areas that could flood because few motorists are on the roads due to the storm, Silver said.
“I think this is the kind of event where people are being smart. They knew it was going to be a significant event,” he said.
