The winds from the hurricane that made its way up the Eastern Seaboard may have dissipated upon reaching Maine Sunday, but the state’s rivers will be feeling the effects of Irene for days to come.

“We have many rivers that are flooded,” said James Brown, a meteorologist from the National Weather Service in Gray. “We’ve had reports of upwards of six inches of rain in some regions and as much as 10 inches in the northern reaches of some of our headwaters.”

At 11 p.m. Saturday, Brown said the state was still experiencing a few showers, but most of the heavy rain had passed through the state.

Even with sunshine forecast for the next several days, “we’re going to have rivers in flood for a while,” Brown said.

As for wind, the highest reported gusts were of 64 miles per hour in North Turner. Highest at the Portland Jetport was 52 mph, Brown said.
