Prolonged, heavy rain produced floods from North Carolina to Maine over the weekend, caused the death of at least 10 people due to flooding or rain-related crashes. The rain event has forced hundreds of people to evacuate, shutting off electricity, weakening dams and making roads impassable.
Residents began assessing the damage left by deadly flooding that tore up highways, swept away houses and tossed boulders and vehicles around like toys. More than a dozen people remained missing in hard-hit southwest New Hampshire.

At least 10 people died in the heavy weekend downpours or in rain-related traffic accidents from Pennsylvania to Maine. About 1,000 New Hampshire residents fled their homes in what the governor called the worst flooding in a quarter century.

Oh shoot. I just voted no on this story because well, there is no story. ...But your references are dynamite!

It would be good to hear your take on what's happening, not just in these floods - but others around the nation. ...A one-liner doesn't work - and your story just needs building.
