BRYAN EATON/Staff photo. George MacDougall cleans out the storm drain in front of his home on the corner of Merrimac and Butler Streetsin Newburyport. The retiree says that during heavy rains, which is forecast for today and tomorrow,flooding can occur and can get worse when snow is on the ground. Much of Merrimac and Water Streets are at the bottom of a network of main and side streets which water pours down to cause the flooding.
