A major northeast wind pounded the U.S. East Coast Friday, packing heavy rain, intermittent snow and strong winds as residents from the mid-Atlantic to Maine braced for coastal flooding.Across the pond, snowstorms shut most of Ireland Friday and forced Britain to call in the army to help battle some of the worst weather seen for nearly 30 years.The storm knocked out power to 500,000 residences and businesses from Michigan to North Carolina.Residents of coastal areas that regularly flood in storms, including the towns of Newburyport, Duxbury and Scituate had been encouraged to evacuate their homes and head to higher ground, said Chris Besse, a spokesman for the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency.He added that it is hard to predict where the storm will take its heaviest toll.It forecast storm surges of up to 1.2 meters for eastern Massachusetts.Roads and schools were closed and many flights canceled across the United Kingdom.
