Portland Press Herald: The storm surge pushed high tides 1.5 to 2 feet above predicted levels in Portland, peaking at 13.11 feet just before noon Friday and reaching levels above 12 feet through Sunday afternoon, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

“It was a really consistent, powerful storm with significant wave action. There was even a lot of wave action at low tide,” said Gayle Bowness, education program manager at the Gulf of Maine Research Institute.
