Storm blamed for fatal crash, power outages in New England

November 27, 2018

Another slug of snow and slush is hitting parts of northern New England, causing power outages, school closures and a fatal crash.

More than 37,000 homes and businesses in Vermont, more than 30,000 in New Hampshire, and more than 20,000 in Maine were in the dark Tuesday morning. A multiple-vehicle crash claimed a life during the snowstorm in Liberty, Maine.

There was a sharp cutoff between rain and snow.

Portland, Maine, and Portsmouth, New Hampshire, got mostly rain, but up to a foot of snow fell in parts of northern Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont.

It’s not yet winter, but it’s been snowy. The National Weather Service says Portland is more than a foot ahead of what’s average for this time of the year.
