Coastal storm to dump up to a foot of snow on Down East Maine


PORTLAND, Maine — A coastal storm that's wreaking havoc across the Northeast is making driving difficult in parts of northern New England.

A New Hampshire State Police dispatcher in Concord says accidents have been reported all day.

A state police cruiser was struck on Interstate 93 in Sanbornton while the trooper had stopped to help a driver whose vehicle had gone off the road. No one was injured.

Meteorologist Margaret Curtis says coastal areas from Portsmouth, New Hampshire, to Portland, Maine, could see 6 to 8 inches of snow on Saturday. She says eastern Maine could see even more, 10 to 14 inches of snow.

She says inland regions will see far less, if any, snow. To the west, most of Vermont also will be spared.
