A video of a house floating down the Baker River in Warren put an exclamation point on the severity of the storm Monday.

Thomas K. Babbit took the video. Wendy Babbit, his wife, said the Baker River is still overflowing in places. She described communities in that area of the state cut off due to swelling rivers and closed or washed-out roads.

"It's just sad," she says. "There's a heck of a lot of damage up here."
