Irene wind pushes waves over Island Park seawall

Only sporadic bursts of rain so far in Portsmouth, but the wind has pushed the Sakonnet River right up to the Island Park seawall, and waves are crashing over near the intersection of Boyd's Lane.

Elsewhere, the streets are still calm. There are a lot of leaves down, and one tree branch blocking the eastbound exit ramp from Rt. 24 to Boyd's Lane, but generally the streets are clear. Power is still on in Island Park, and there was a small group of residents and sightseers on Park Ave to watch the waves.
