Power was knocked out in much of Berwick and other nearby towns for several hours Saturday.

About 6,610 customers in Berwick, South Berwick, North Berwick, Lebanon, Eliot and York lost power between 9:40 a.m. and 11:40 a.m., according to a Central Maine Power company dispatcher.

Company officials said the exact cause of the outage has not been determined, but may have been caused by the crash of an automobile into a utility pole.
