The snowfall may have stopped, but the work is only just beginning in the coastal community of Scituate.

Town Administrator Patricia Vinchesi says this storm is one for the yearbooks, easily surpassing the damage caused by the "No Name Storm" of 2007.

"The impact of that storm and the severity of it happened over three tides, and in this particular storm the flooding happened in one tide," Vinchesi said.

WBUR reporter David Boeri went down to Scituate to see how the hard-hit town is recovering and he joins us in the studio.
