The eye of the storm came closest to Massachusetts at about 9 p.m., about 50 to 70 miles southeast of Nantucket. The storm caused flooding in some Massachusetts communities, but caused no major damage.

As of 8 a.m., the center of the storm was just off the coast of Nova Scotia, and it was traveling to the north/northeast at 23 mph, according to the weather service. The center of the storm was forecast to approach western Nova Scotia in the next few hours. Tropical storm warnings remained in effect for Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and New Brunswick.
