NORTH ATTLEBORO, Mass. — Gov. Maura Healey toured Leominster and North Attleboro on Tuesday to survey severe damage in the region caused by 'catastrophic' flash flooding, which forced the evacuation of residents and their pets overnight, caused sinkholes and collapsed a bridge and buildings in some areas. 'Once again we find ourselves at the scene of catastrophic flooding,' Healey told reporters during a press conference in North Attleboro around midday Tuesday. The governor pledged state resources to help residents who have been impacted by the flash flooding, which caused epic damage to local homes, businesses, vehicles and tore chunks of concrete from roadways.
