HINGHAM, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) – The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) suspended ferry service in Hingham Thursday morning for repairs.

This came after a sailboat collided with the commuter dock and crew had to work to wedge the ship out. The incident came as a surprise to some locals, including Kerry.

“When you commute by water you’re susceptible to Mother Nature,” he said after being receptive to the news. “It’s alright. It is what it is.”

On the other hand, Dan was hopeful to get on the ferry and recharge his phone after losing power from the storm.

“I don’t expect the power’s going to be back in my house until next week.” Dan also said that he had two large trees down on his street.

The MBTA said modified ferry service would only operate to Hull throughout the rest of the day. People were advised to use the agency’s trip planner to make travel accommodations.
