The nor’easter that is expected to batter Massachusetts Friday and Saturday has already pulled down trees and power lines and caused significant flooding along the coast and in Boston.

Forecasters with the National Weather Service are warning that if you’re venturing out to see the storm that coastal flooding should be observed from a “safe location/distance.”

“At this point you should NOT be driving through flood waters, and it is not recommended to go out on beaches, sea walls, jetties, rock piers, etc. to observe coastal flooding,” they wrote.
