Storm Brings Mix of Rain and Snow to New England

Monday, 08 Nov 2010 11:10 AM

 

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — A powerful coastal storm packing rain, snow and sleet and wind gusts topping 60 mph is raking New England, causing thousands of power outages, shutting down schools and slowing the commute.

More than 62,000 homes and businesses were in the dark Monday morning in Maine alone, and there were sporadic power outages elsewhere across the region. Portland International Jetport recorded a gust of 63 mph, and gusts topped 60 mph at the Isles of Shoals off New Hampshire. In Massachusetts, Worcester Regional Airport recorded a 52 mph wind gust.

Dozens of schools were closed in Maine because there was no electricity.

There was no significant snow, but there was enough rain to cause flooding and road closings. The National Weather Service said the storm will continue through Tuesday.
