Dec. 10, 2014
BOSTON (AP) — The storm that brought several inches of rain to some portions of Massachusetts is winding down, but its punch is still being felt by some commuters.
The Medford Street underpass in Somerville, for example, remains closed Wednesday because of flooding.
The state Department of Transportation also reported on Twitter that flooding had closed a section of Route 1A in Ipswich.
Torrential downpours caused a variety of other problems during the afternoon and evening hours on Tuesday.
Green Line passengers had to be bused for a time between the Kenmore and Fenway stations because of a one-foot rise on the Muddy River. The MBTA said sandbags were placed to protect the subway tunnel east of Fenway.
The T was reporting no major service problems on Wednesday.
