PORTLAND, Maine (AP) _ A storm that rolled through Maine set a rainfall record in Portland _ more than 6 inches - enough to cause street flooding and damage scores of cars.
Mike Kistner from the National Weather Service says the 24-hour total for Wednesday's storm was 6.43 inches at the Portland International Jetport. That's a new record for the date, and it's fifth on the state's all-time list.
Kistner said some manhole covers were blown off and that some parked cars floated into streets. Dozens of cars were damaged.
There were no reports of serious injuries.
