Remnants of Noel blast New England

Deadliest storm of the season brings high winds, rough surf.

November 4, 2007

Heavy surf and high winds blasted the New England coast Saturday as the remnants of Hurricane Noel swept north along the northeastern Atlantic seaboard.

Residents of Massachusetts and Maine experienced scattered power outages and tree damage. Wind gusts were reported as high as 85 miles per hour on Cape Cod, the National Weather Service said.

More than 140 people in the Dominican Republic and Haiti were killed when Noel swept across those countries with catastropic flooding and mudslides. Noel is the deadliest storm so far of the Atlantic hurricane season which officially runs through the end of November.
