NORTH CAROLINA Only road onto island reopening after Arthur

KILL DEVIL HILLS, N.C.

North Carolina’s popular beach towns began returning to the business of recreation Saturday, after Arthur lashed the state’s coast with forceful winds and heavy rain and then churned northward without leaving a trail of significant damage.

Arthur was downgraded to a tropical storm early Saturday, but the storm’s near-hurricane strength winds slammed into Canada’s maritime provinces, causing about 250,000 customers to lose power. The storm caused flight cancellations and delays at the region’s largest airport in Halifax, with flooding in New Brunswick.

New England was largely spared from damage spawned by the storm, but some 19,000 people in Maine and 1,600 in Vermont were without power after high winds and heavy rains hit the region.

The ocean churned by Arthur remained dangerous Saturday with the risk of rip currents able to wash the strongest swimmer to sea.
