Wilma, nor’easter beat up on Northeast


Howling winds and driving rain lashed the Northeast on Tuesday, causing power outages in two states, disrupting air travel, pounding New Jersey beaches with 20-foot waves and forcing authorities to issue flood and high wind warnings in areas saturated by earlier rain.

Fueled by moisture from Hurricane Wilma, the nor’easter was forecast to soak New England with 2 to 4 inches of rain and bring snow to northern New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine.

In Connecticut, downed trees closed roads in Easton and Harwinton, and 4,000 Northeast Utilities customers were without power Tuesday.
