The power of the weekend blizzard's pounding waves washed thousands of shellfish on to Massachusetts beaches.
On Nantasket Beach in Hull on Tuesday, Joe Delmonaco said the beach was littered with piles of dead lobsters, along with sea clams, starfish and skates.
On Monday, beachcombers on Revere Beach found tens of thousands of surf clams along the beach's 3.5 mile expanse.
Paul Diodati, director of the state Division of Marine Fisheries, told the Boston Globe that the surf clams, which were buried in shallow sandy areas, were thrown onto the beach by waves.
Delmonaco said the lobster and other shellfish in Hull attracted sea gulls which made them their Tuesday meal.
