CARIBOU, Maine (AP) - Officials say powerful thunderstorms disrupted Memorial Day activities in northern Maine with heavy rain, hail and gusts topping 40 mph.

Meteorologist Joe Hewitt from the National Weather Service in Caribou says one of Monday’s storms produced a confirmed funnel cloud but that it didn’t touch down. He said there also were unconfirmed reports of crop damage from hail. He said one of the storms left hail piled 3 inches deep in Easton.

There were scattered storms across northern New England.

Officials say one of the bigger storms passed just south of Caribou during the city’s parade and wreath-laying ceremony. Another storm in Hopkinton, N.H., produced hail the size of pingpong balls on Sunday.
