Seawater Friday flowed onto some coastal streets around Boston, where businesses set up flood barriers and piled sandbags around their doors as a powerful storm threatened to flood pockets of the U.S. coast from Maine to Virginia.Over 700,000 homes and businesses were without power in the U.S. Northeast, hundreds of flights were canceled at New York's three major airports and Boston's Logan International, and the federal government closed offices in Washington.Residents of coastal areas that regularly flood in storms, including the towns of Newburyport, Duxbury and Scituate had been encouraged to evacuate their homes and head to higher ground, said Chris Besse, a spokesman for the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency.He added that it is hard to predict where the storm will take its heaviest toll.It forecast storm surges of up to 1.2 meters for eastern Massachusetts.
