(AP) — Maine and New Hampshire are bracing for Hurricane Arthur while Vermont regains electricity after a series of powerful storms lashed the state.

Meanwhile, communities across the region are rescheduling July 4 plans due to bad weather.

The National Weather Service says central and southeast New Hampshire and southern Maine are under a flash flood watch and Arthur is expected to bring heavy bands of rain to both states. Coastal areas are under a high surf advisory for Saturday.

Green Mountain Power in Vermont reports more than 3,700 customers are without power after Thursday's storms. The utility says more than 20,000 customers' power was restored overnight.

Many cities and towns across the region are canceling or postponing July 4 events due to expected inclement weather.
