Henri moved across southwestern Massachusetts on Sunday afternoon, after earlier making landfall at Westerly, R.I. The storm brought winds, rain, power outages, and storm surges near the coast.

The possibility remains for flooding and outages as Henri continues to move north. Its anticipated track may take it into southern Vermont. The storm weakened to a tropical depression on Sunday evening.

See photos and videos as Henri approached and made landfall.
