Day 2 Of Henri; Flood Watch In Effect For Berkshire County
It's not often that a Hurricane hits New England, I mean, you can probably remember all the hurricanes that hit near here over the last 50 years...Bob, Gloria, Floyd, Sandy, Irene, etc... However, Henri is not one for the history books, at least in The Berkshires.
Although Henri was downgraded to a Tropical Storm before it made landfall in RI, it made for a rainy Sunday in the Berkshires. Some local roads were flooded and some restaurants may have prematurely closed, but, for the most part, we were spared from any big damage.
As of Monday morning, Eversource was reporting no customers without power in Berkshire County.
Tropical Depression Henri has now stalled over the New York/Connecticut border with a projected easterly track through Tuesday morning.
Winds should not be an issue on Monday; however, a flood watch is in effect for Berkshire County until 8 p.m.

With the ground so saturated, meteorologists warn that trees can do down more easily if winds pick up; however, it is not expected to be windy.
