2 die on NH roads, but pre-holiday air travel went smoothly
“The rain was heavy early, but the strong winds we were worried about never really materialized through the afternoon,” Manchester-Boston Regional Airport spokesman Tom Malafronte said.
“Things aren’t bad now, but in a storm like this, things can change in a hurry if conditions change and get colder,” Malafronte said.
According to police and fire department officials, Normand Levesque, 60, of Nashua, was driving northbound on Center Street when he succumbed to a sudden medical condition. His truck drifted across the center lane, traveled approximately 300 feet, and hit a home at 854 Center St. No one was injured inside the house, owned by James and Wendy Nelson. Officials described the damage to the house and the truck as minor.
“Historically, the busiest travel days are the Wednesday prior to Thanksgiving Day and the following Sunday,” said Malafronte. “Most of the airlines operate a reduced schedule on Thanksgiving Day due to decreased demand. We expect that most, if not all of the flights arriving and departing Manchester, will be full so it would be prudent to allow a little more time to park, check-in and clear security.”
