Last Thursday, October 17th, most of the state experienced the effects of a nor’easter. The low pressure moved across the state bringing strong winds and heavy rain, leaving many coastal areas--where some saw wind speeds of up to 70 mph--without power for multiple days.
In the Calais area, wind speed was around 45 mph, resulting in many knocked-down trees and a loss of power for some. The public works department stayed on top of things with the removal of downed trees and limbs from roadways around the city.
