Floodwaters in Maine are receding this weekend thanks to a letup in the region’s incessant rain, but predictions of more wet weather are raising concerns about the prospect of renewed flooding.
Work crews took advantage of the break in the weather Saturday to begin repairs to washed out roads in the southern part of the state.
In Freeport, one of the towns hardest hit, officials lifted a boil water order put in place after a break in a water main and said everyone was back in service. But it could take up to a month to repair the road above the broken main.
Meanwhile, with more rain forecast for later Sunday and into Monday, the National Weather Service has posted a flash flood warning for portions of western Maine.
