The wet weather has also resulted in crashes, including a fatal crash on I-95 north in Lexington early this morning involving a tandem tractor-trailer unit and another tractor-trailer crash on I-93 north in Canton this afternoon.

Wednesday’s inclement weather was the first of three punches Mother Nature has in store for the region. More rain is expected Thursday and Friday, followed by some effects from Hurricane Joakim over the weekend into next week.
