Worst storms over in east, south but more coming

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - The remnants of a violent storm that claimed 13 lives in Oklahoma has sent winds and torrential rain to northern New England and a tornado to South Carolina. But meteorologists say the worst is over.

The National Weather Service says the work week could begin with storms bringing showers to the Northeast and mid-Atlantic and large hail and high winds to the Great Plains.

But it won't be like Sunday, when storms flattened trees and utility poles in parts of northern New England, delayed flights in New York City and caused a tornado to touch down in South Carolina.

In Texas, the Coast Guard says its crews saved or helped rescue 17 people caught in storms along the Gulf Coast.

Meanwhile, residents in Oklahoma cleaned up after storms there killed 13 people, including three veteran storm chasers.
