Storm leaves behind power outages, damaged property

EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — The brunt of Thursday’s storm has left the area but some residual effects may still be felt in the evening hours.

The storm brought widespread rain and strong winds throughout the day, which caused isolated flooding, damage and power outages. At its peak, more than 10,000 National Grid customers in Rhode Island lost power.

A Flash Flood Watch remains in effect until 1 a.m. Friday. Some additional river and street flooding is possible Thursday night, according to Chief Meteorologist Tony Petrarca.

Drivers were urged to use caution due to reduced visibility and ponding and possible debris on the roads. Several cars parked in the area of Centerville Road in Warwick were heavily damaged after a tree came down on top of them.

In addition, several flights in and out of T.F. Green Airport were delayed.
