SALISBURY, Mass. (AP) — More than 40 people have been evacuated from about a dozen homes along the coast in Salisbury because of flooding that came with a massive snowstorm.

Some had to be taken out in the buckets of front-end loaders, including resident Kelly Hochmuth.

An emergency medical technician had to take Hochmuth’s 6-week-old baby out separately.

The forecast only called for moderate swells so residents were not evacuated Friday night.

Those who were evacuated are keeping busy at a senior center in the town’s municipal building. It could be days before they can go home because officials are still assessing damage to their houses.

In Quincy, residents of two neighborhoods were evacuated Friday night and Saturday morning because of flooding.
