Heavy rain washes out roads in southwestern NH
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) -- Heavy rainstorms have washed out and closed parts of roads in southwestern New Hampshire.
The state Department of Transportation says major roadways with high water or washouts after Tuesday evening's rain are Routes 9, 10 and 12. Route 9 is a major east-west roadway.
The areas affected by the road closures include Gilsum and Sullivan.
DOT spokesman Bill Boynton says luckily it's not a statewide issue and there are no reports of traffic accidents or casualties. He says he won't know how much damage there was to the roads until the water subsides.
The heaviest rain fell from around 6 to 6:30 p.m. Concord also had heavy rain but no reports of roads affected.
The National Weather Service says hail the size of a quarter rained down on Alstead.
