Hull officials said they mostly escaped Sandy’s wrath, experiencing only minimal wash-over from high tide.

According to Robert A. Hollingshead, Hull’s Fire Chief, there were no existing power outages on Tuesday morning, and overall things had returned to normal.

A tree fell into a house. The wind also blew off the roof of the Department of Conservation and Recreation bandstand on Nantasket beach, however overall the damage was minimal, he said.

“Everything went well. We’re very fortunate compared to other towns close by and New York and New Jersey. We had some minor flooding last night, but nothing serious, nothing out of the ordinary,” he said.

There was some wash over on Atlantic Ave in Gunrock and some in the Stony Beach area by Hull village, but “it was just some tidal splash over, the tide went out,” Hollingshead said.
