Tropical storm warnings have been issued for parts of coastal New England and Atlantic Canada as Hurricane Lee approaches. The storm is expected to bring heavy rain and strong winds, potentially leading to flooding and power outages in affected areas.

While inland areas of New England are not expected to be significantly impacted, eastern New England and parts of Nova Scotia could see up to 4 inches of rain, with the possibility of power lines being knocked down and flooding occurring due to the storm’s size.

The Canadian Hurricane Center has issued tropical storm warnings for New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. Tropical storm conditions, with winds of at least 39 mph, are expected to begin in southern New England on Friday afternoon.

Maine’s Governor Janet Mills declared a state of emergency in preparation for the storm, and a combination of hurricane and tropical storm alerts are in effect for many coastal communities in New England.

Although Lee is forecasted to weaken as it approaches land, its large size means it can still deliver strong winds and significant rainfall. Hurricane-force winds extend up to 105 miles from the center, with tropical storm-force winds stretching up to 320 miles.

On Saturday, hurricane-strength winds may affect the northern coast of Maine and parts of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, while a wider area could experience tropical storm-force wind gusts.

Nova Scotia has taken precautions by closing provincial and wildlife parks in anticipation of the storm. Lee is expected to bring heavy rainfall to Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island, with the potential for 6 inches of rain in some areas due to recurrent downpours.

As Hurricane Lee approaches, residents and authorities in the affected regions are bracing for its impact and taking necessary precautions to ensure safety.
