Flood warnings issued in Maine, NH
GRAY, Maine (AP) -- Record-setting heavy rains have caused minor flooding, closed down roads and prompted flood warnings in Maine and New Hampshire as a slow-moving front churns across the region.
The National Weather Service issued flood warnings Sunday across much of Maine and parts of New Hampshire as heavy rains continued falling, with some places getting close to or more than 6 inches since Saturday morning.
Flood warnings were issued for the Saco River near Conway, N.H., as well as sections of the Swift, Presumpscot and Kennebec rivers in Maine. A coastal flood warning was issued for coastal Maine and New Hampshire.
The weather service said the rain would let up later Sunday, but warned there probably will be scattered showers and little sunshine in the days ahead.
