New England was in the middle of a four day nor'easter which dumped tremendous rainfall totals, especially over eastern sections. 19.19 inches of rain fell at Camp Ellis, Maine. 13.03 inches was recorded at Newburyport, Massachusetts. Portland, Maine set a new all-time 24 hour rainfall record with 13.32 inches. Other rainfall totals included 17.21 inches at Sanford, Maine, 12.23 inches at Portsmouth, New Hampshire, 11.21 inches at Bedford, Massachusetts, and 7.92 inches at Boston, Massachusetts. The storm tapped moisture from Hurricane Lili, far to the southeast over the Atlantic, which contributed to the excessive rainfall. The nor'easter also produced high winds along coastal sections. A wind gust to 81 mph was recorded at Little Compton, Rhode Island. One person was killed and total damage was over 50 million dollars.
