Henri Continues to Drench Northeast as Rain, Deadly Floods Strike Tennessee

Henri is now a tropical depression lingering over the northeast.

The storm brought wind gusts up to 70 miles an hour as it came ashore on the coast of Rhode Island Sunday, causing 100,000 homes to lose power as it moved inland.

But its worst damage might be yet to come. The storm’s rain bands are spread out over nine states, putting 40 million people under a flash flood watch.

A tree almost fell on two homes in West Kingston, Rhode Island.

“He told me that it fell down. I said, ‘No Sir.’ I thought he was lying. So when I came out here, I couldn’t believe it that it didn’t hit anything,” said Donna Snyder.

Waves up to 19 feet slammed the New England coast.

Farther south, residents of central New Jersey saw eight inches of rain and floodwaters. Rescue workers carried scores of people to safety.

The National Weather Service says the system is predicted to hover Monday near the Connecticut – New York state line before it travels east across New England and then pushes out into the Atlantic ocean.
