Central Maine Power Outages: Restoration Will Take Days
Central Maine power outages have affected an estimated 130,000 homes and businesses due to the winter storm. Central Maine Power Company (CMPC) said the restoration may take days.
A major winter storm in the Northeast brought heavy snow and high winds. Central Maine Power Company started the repairing efforts since Thursday. Crews from other states and Canada arrived on Thursday evening to help with power restoration.
It may take several days before service is restored in all areas, said Central Maine Power Company.
Damage is heaviest in York and Cumberland Counties, where wind gusts exceeding 60 miles per hour were reported in coastal areas Thursday night. There is also considerable damage in Lincoln and Sagadahoc Counties in Maine’s Midcoast. The wind damage in southern and coastal areas comes a day after heavy wet snow caused numerous outages in Maine’s western mountains and foothills.
