Heavy surf crashes over a seawall on the Atlantic Ocean during the early stages of Hurricane Sandy, Oct. 29, 2012, in Kennebunk, Maine. Hurricane Sandy wheeled toward land as forecasters feared.
Wind gusts topped 60 mph, shutting down the port of Portland and knocking out power to more than 86,000 homes and businesses. The National Weather Service says rain and gusting winds will continue across Maine through the early part of the week as remnants of the storm make their way across the state. A flood warning has been issued for the Swift River in the western Maine town of Roxbury.
