    What to do if you're caught in a rip current

    A warning if you're hitting the beach this summer -- rip currents could be a problem. Rip currents can carry away even strong swimmers, so don't take chances when red flags are up and/or life guards aren't on duty. Rip currents are powerful, channeled currents of water flowing away from shore. They typically extend from the shoreline, through the surf zone, and past the line of breaking waves. Rip currents can occur at any beach with breaking waves, including the Great Lakes.

BOSTON (AP) - The latest blast of snow to hit New England dumped more than a foot in part of Massachusetts and packed heavy winds that left thousands without power on Cape Cod.

Coastal areas in Maine and south of Boston appeared to get the worst of the storm overnight. Fifteen inches of snow was reported in Sandwich, Mass., and 10 inches were reported in New Bedford and Plymouth.

Seventeen inches were reported in Hancock, Maine. The Department of Transportation says it deployed 375 trucks statewide at the height of the storm Saturday night.

Wind gusts of more than 50 mph were reported Saturday on Cape Cod, where utility NStar said fewer than 1,000 customers were without power early Monday.
