In looking at the rain totals on the GYX's PNS, You can see the areas that sat under some of those embedded convective cells, It looked to be a narrow band that ran due NNE out of the gulf of Maine and along the associated front, Good luck next week on the family members not running the well dry...........;)

I'm more and more convinced that we sit in a relatively favorable spot for events like this due to the orientation of the coastline. I think local frictional wind patterns/coastal front help to enhance rainfall (or snowfall when it comes to NORLUNs) in that northern coastal York area up through LEW. This is like the third event in the last 3 years with flash flooding on a similar set up.

This is true, And definitely we are in a favorable spot on these SWFE like we may end up seeing towards the end of the week when they track favorably

Didn't this happen recently and they saved the kid?

Supposedly (as others have mentioned) it was a combined (sewer and stormwater) storm drain. They were probably constructed around the turn of the 20th century, and well undersized. Usually it only takes a couple inches of rain. Nashua is also known for having triangular sewer manhole covers which were prone to unique problems one of which was manhole covers falling into the manhole. Apparently they're replacing those covers these days. 

 

I read a body was recovered downstream in Tyngsboro.

Boston Globe story with picture of cover.
