YARMOUTH, Mass. (AP) — Tropical Storm Earl’s worst damage in New England has been to seasonal businesses hoping to end their summer on a high note.

The storm was far less intense than feared. It dumped heavy rain on Cape Cod cottages and fishing villages Friday but caused little damage. It left clear skies in its wake.

Restaurants and hotels are hoping to salvage their Labor Day weekend business.

The storm made landfall Saturday near Western Head, Nova Scotia. It has been blamed for the death of a man who drowned while trying to secure his boat near Halifax.

And police in Avon, N.J., say a body found Saturday has been identified as that of a swimmer who went missing Thursday in rough ocean surf. The medical examiner’s office hasn’t determined the cause of the man’s death.
