New England on alert as Hurricane Lee moves closer

Hurricane, tropical storm and storm surge alerts have been issued for much of the New England coast and parts of the Canadian Maritimes as Hurricane Lee begins its approach to a part of the country that is rarely affected by tropical cyclones. Lee is forecast to make landfall near the border of Maine and Canada, but the storm is so large that impacts from the storm will stretch as far south as Rhode Island.
