Maine is under its first hurricane watch in 15 years as it breaches for Category 1 Hurricane Lee expected to hit the already drenched state by Friday afternoon.
Governor Janet Mills declared a state of emergency as Maine prepares to face the storm of powerful winds and coastal flooding.
Earlier this week, New England was subjected to a deluge of rain, flash flooding, and tornadoes.
Officials are getting ready to deal with any emergencies including power outages.
“It’s a batten-down-the-hatches kind of day,” said a boat owner from Boothbay Harbor Marina where boats were being removed from the storm’s way.
