Maine dealing with devastating storms

“The impact of the Dec. 18 storm was more severe in western and central Maine than elsewhere, while coastal communities were hit harder in the back-to-back storms that brought record storm surge on Jan. 10 and 13. But in all three storms, which wreaked havoc from Bethel to Eastport, flooding caused the worst damage.

In the storms this month, beachfront homes in southern Maine suffered heavy damage when high winds and peak tides combined to push waves up against houses and into low-lying streets. But for much of Maine’s mostly-rocky coast, it was working waterfront properties that were pummeled by the surf.”
