WBZ-TV’s Jim Smith reports.

Beach Road, which runs along the beach, was especially hard-hit, as piles of rocks and sand were left scattered all over the road by the storm, making it impassable.

Even a large piece of a flight of stairs made its way across the road, showing that even though the once-powerful Hurricane Irene lost strength, it still packed a punch.
