Parts of the coast and interior of Maine received more than 5 inches of rain during heavy storms over the weekend.
Communities in Sagadahoc County, including Bath and West Bath, received about 5.11 inches of rain over a 48-hour period, the National Weather Service reported on Sunday evening. Windsor, in Kennebec County, got 6 inches during the same period.
Precipitation in towns in Cumberland County ranged from 1.8 inches at Harpswell to 1.2 inches at Gray.
Despite the heavy rains, no dangerous flooding or road washouts were reported, said Chris Kimble, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service’s office in Gray.
âThere was water on the roads, but we’re not aware of anything like a road wash or water rescues, but we’re definitely concerned about that,â Kimble said. “It’s an extreme amount of rain.”
