As Boston digs out from Thursday’s blizzard that dumped over a foot of snow and led to its worst flooding in 40 years, it was faced with another weather headache – single-digit temperatures that created rivers of ice water and trapped a number of cars.

Images from Boston on Friday show cars stuck in frozen floodwaters that reach up to the hoods in some cases.

Some car owners tried to prepare for the storm by lifting their windshield wipers and opening their trunks so that they wouldn’t be buried under snow and frozen.

But it is unlikely they anticipated that the cars would be done in by floodwaters.

One amateur video filmed in Revere, Massachusetts, the coastal city just north of Boston, showed a large sheet of ice covering the street.

According to The Boston Globe, about 20 residents needed to be evacuated from their homes. Some of them were rescued by high-water vehicles deployed by the National Guard.

Sixty cars were damaged after high tides flooded the parking lot of a high school in Gloucester, The Boston Globe reported.

The frigid temperatures – Boston’s high was only 15 degrees on Friday – will continue to blanket the area for the next 48 hours.

Overnight, the low temperature could reach -1, with wind chills of -35 in some places.

That’s balmy compared to the -100 wind chill that can be felt on Mount Washington, the highest peak in the Northeast United States.

The winter storm has claimed the lives of nearly two dozen Americans, according to the New York Daily News.

In Virginia, a nine-year-old girl who was sledding while visiting relatives was struck and killed by a pickup truck.

Also in Virginia, a 75-year-old man was hit and killed by a snowplow while clearing snow from parking lots.

According to the National Weather Service, Boston broke the record for the highest ever recorded tide on Thursday.

Benjamin Sipprell, a meteorologist in Boston for the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration, told the Daily Beast that the flooding was a result of the blizzard hitting at high tide, and the high tide being higher than usual due to Wednesday’s supermoon.

A supermoon is a full moon that occurs when the moon is closest to Earth in its orbit. This happens about four to six times a year.
