The usual spots along the North End waterfront flooded at high tide from the storm surge associated with the February 8, 2013 blizzard. Significant water intrusions from Boston Harbor were seen at Long Wharf, Sargent’s Wharf and along the North End waterfront. Notably in this latest storm, the water surge reached inward past the Chart House to nearly reach the Long Wharf Marriott.

According to The Boston Harbor Association, Blizzard Nemo was another “near miss” (as was SuperStorm Sandy) in terms of experiencing the next “100-year” flood because the 4 foot storm surge hit Boston at low tide, not high tide.
