Officials warn of flying debris due to Sandy
SCITUATE, Mass. (WHDH) -- Officials urged residents to stay inside Monday as Hurricane Sandy brought damaging winds to Massachusetts.
Winds sent debris flying into the air, prompting officials to urge residents to stay inside and out of danger.
Some South Shore residents stayed put, and did not evacuate.
“They’re not rookies down here. So I don’t think they’re too worried,” said Eric Grill.
Police offered rides to shelters for last-minute evacuees clearing out of beach-front homes.
“My road will probably be lost and wiped out so I figured I’d some down here and do some work,” said Louise Villani.
Police hoped more people would head to safety at a command center in Marshfield.
“The major problem that we have is people that are not listening. They’re going down to the sea walls, they’re endangering their children,” Lt. Paul Taber, Marshfield Police Department.
The next high tide is expected to be at midnight. Officials warned residents to stay indoors due to high seas carrying debris.
