    People on Massachusetts' coast are getting ready for a long-lasting nor'easter.

    Scituate residents checked their dock lines Wednesday night, making sure their boats were secure at Scituate Harbor in anticipation of the high-impact storm.

    The lobster boats were also tucked away.

    By Wednesday afternoon, the wind gusts were strong, the seas rough, and the rain coming down hard.

    "Usually, the longer they last like this, the worse it is for our gear," said Tucker Patterson, a Scituate lobsterman.

    The lobstermen already secured their boats and moved their traps into deeper water to avoid tangling and damage.

    "We prepare every day for something like this," said said Dave Dauphinee. "You just don't have to wait for this to happen, so everybody should be on guard, and everything should be fine."

    Coastal flooding is also expected to be minor to moderate, and power outages are expected with tree limbs falling down.

    "I just hope we don't have any damage and hope it's just fun and everyone is safe," said Nick Vantine, a Scituate resident. "That's what I'm hoping for.
