    Nor'easter here in Maine. flooding w/pics

    The storm that hit Maine yesterday is just winding down.
    about 300,000 people with out power as of now.
    High winds with astronomically high tides caused lots of flooding and erosion by the ocean.
    One of the windows in my apartment building completly blew out.
    We don't see wind-rain storms like this very often, last was 10-15 yrs ago.
    Me and a friend went for a sight seeing ride around the area where I live and there were tons of closed roads and downed trees.
    We tried to get to some of the local beaches, but only one road was open. couldn't get any pics there because of the high winds and rain. The rain actually hurt my face.
    here are a couple of pics, most taken out a car window so there not perfect.
    keep in mind these pics are not the worst of it.
    we couldn't get to the bad stuff.
    pics

    water in street




    ocean water





    downed trees



    people aren't too smart when it comes to water in the road

    Wow! Is that OOB? We got maybe 5" of rain here in CT but, although the wind shook the windows last night, I haven't heard of anything like that here. I haven't heard from my mother-in-law up at the VT/Quebec border, but she was expecting lots of snow.

    I was just watching the news and it looks like NJ got hit hard too.
    Up here in Maine we usually the worst weather we get is lots of snow ice and the ocasional thunder storm in the summer.
    abcat1993, no the tree isn't on fire. It was pouring rain with 30-50 mph wind when I took that pic
