Patriots Day Flood - April 16, 2007

Torrential rain swept through the state yesterday, washing out hundreds of roads and leaving tens of thousands of residents without power. Gov. John Lynch declared a state of emergency and activated 230 members of the New Hampshire National Guard to help with evacuations, traffic control and sandbagging.

The nor'easter, which hit Concord early in the morning, dumped rain throughout New England. By yesterday evening, more than three inches of rain had fallen in the Concord area, according to the National Weather Service.
