The National Weather Service has warned of minor flooding in poor drainage areas around the state, and a high wind warning is up for portions of the coast, with gusts of up to 60 mph possible in some areas.

Most flights were leaving Logan International Airport according to the Massachusetts Port Authority, but there have been some cancellations. Cape Air, for example, was forced to cancel several flights on Wednesday to Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket.

Utility companies National Grid and NStar were reporting outages affecting a combined total of about 6,400 customers as of 11 a.m.
