As CBC points out, New Brunswick is preparing for what is expected to be a wet and windy weekend as the remnants of what was Hurricane Arthur push their way through.

The storm's exit from the U.S. comes after days of soaking rain for millions of people along the East Coast.

Some parts of the Boston area saw more than 8 inches of rain — breaking a record. The downpour from Arthur caused many cars to stall in towns like New Bedford as storm drains overflowed. (Via WBZ-TV)

But now the storm has almost completely left the U.S., leaving behind gorgeous views like this one. This was a shot of Cape May in New Jersey from early Saturday morning. (Via WCAU)

Overall, CNN reports Arthur didn't cause much damage along the coastline — it mainly just caused plenty of headaches for drivers trying to get around.

So far, no deaths have been reported from Arthur.
