There are dire weather predictions for the entire Northeast today, March 2, with weather channels throwing around phrases like “bomb cyclone,” “historic storm,” and more. Some people are losing power, winds are high, and coastal areas are at risk of flooding.

Downtown Boston is already getting pretty waterlogged.

The full extent to which Boston gets walloped by this storm is yet to be determined, but we’ll be tracking local restaurant-related updates here throughout the day, including precautionary closures, news of damage (hopefully none), and more. Email boston@eater.com with any updates.
