09 Dec WCME Midcoast News December 9, 2014
The latest storm targeting the Midcoast will produce various forms of precipitation, depending on your location. It will most likely be rain on the coast, a mix of rain snow and sleet inland, and some snow in the mountains. The heaviest precipitation comes this afternoon and lasts until tomorrow, with some powerful wind gusts of up to 50 miles an hour, and partly because of those high winds some minor coastal flooding is possible at times of high tides.
In Brunswick, preliminary approval has come from the town’s Rivers and Coastal Waters Commission for key portions of the draft of a harbor ordinance, which includes a plan to grandfather existing mooring privileges for boat owners. The commission also plans in the new year to make recommendations on a possible mooring fee. Brunswick is the only town on Casco Bay currently not imposing a mooring fee.
In Bath, police have arrested and charged two young male residents of the city in a burglary and vandalism incident at the Huse School building on Andrews Road, where police say they found a path of destruction with a price tag of more than twenty thousand dollars–destruction that included numerous smashed windows and doors.
