BOSTON, MA (AP) – Boston’s mayor is pleading with drivers to stay off the roads as parts of the city are seeing flooding in unexpected places.
    
Democratic Mayor Marty Walsh said Thursday that too many cars are still out on the roads and getting caught up in the rising flood waters and requiring rescues. He says the city’s public school will remain closed Friday.
    
Icy waters from Boston Harbor poured into streets during the afternoon high tide in the city’s Seaport District and parts of downtown popular with tourists.
    
Elsewhere in coastal Massachusetts, the state National Guard helped rescue a woman and her two children from a car in flood waters in Marshfield.
    
In Newburyport, police said there were evacuations on Plum Island because of flooding and the only road from the mainland was closed.
