CONCORD, N.H. (CBS) – Four people were injured in three New Hampshire towns on Sunday as Tropical Storm Irene rolled through the area.
Two people in Wolfeboro and one in Bedford were seriously injured when they were hit by flying tree limbs while trying to clean up other fallen tree limbs. Another person was injured in Concord while out walking during the storm, according to the New Hampshire State Fire Marshal’s Office.
“The storm continues to create hazards and debris. We have seen several serious injuries related to flying tree limbs. We urge all New Hampshire residents to save the clean up until tomorrow, after the storm ends,” said State Fire Marshal J. William Degnan.
Authorities also spotted several surfers, swimmers and sight-seers on New Hampshire beaches, and are urging people to stay home until the storm is over.
