PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A slow-moving winter storm bringing snow again in the northeast is also dumping a lot of rain in parts of northern New England and threatening to cause flooding.

In parts of southern and mid-coastal Maine more than three inches of rain has fallen and forecasters say some areas could get more than seven inches. The river in the flood-prone New Hampshire town of Goffstown is nearing flood stage and residents have been told to prepare for possible evacuation.

Back-to-back storms have been blamed for a number of deaths, including a man who was hit by a snow laden tree branch in Central Park. In upstate New York, state police report two deaths in traffic accidents on slick roads, one near Rochester and another southeast of Syracuse.
