The storm’s brush with the Northeast late Friday was less intense than feared. It dumped heavy rain on Cape Cod, Nantucket Island and Martha’s Vineyard.

Earl is now a tropical storm with winds of 70 mph. The center of the storm is about 145 miles southwest of Nova Scotia. It is expected to reach the coast by late Saturday morning or early afternoon.

In Massachusetts, there are a few hundred power outages, a handful of downed power lines and isolated flooding in low-lying areas.

Earl had caused flooding but no injuries and little damage on North Carolina’s Outer Banks.
