Tropical storm "Henri" hits the US coast in Rhode Island

Storm “Henri” has hit the coast in Rhode Island. Millions of people in the northeastern United States are hoping for a mild outcome.

New York – The tropical storm “Henri” reached the northeast coast of the USA on Sunday noon (local time) and brought heavy rains with it.

The US hurricane center NHC reported that the storm hit the coast near the city of Westerly in the state of Rhode Island and reached speeds of around 95 kilometers per hour. Rhode Islands Governor Dan McKee had expected “severe effects of high winds, power outages and floods” in the morning.

“Henri” had previously been downgraded to a tropical storm. According to the NHC, the maximum wind speed was lower than a few hours earlier. After hitting land, its strength will in all probability continue to decline, according to a management report. A hurricane warning was in effect for Long Island, Rhode Island, and Connecticut.
