PORTLAND — About 1,800 customers in Maine are without power after high winds caused outages across the state.
Central Maine Power said Monday that most of the remaining outages are in Franklin, Oxford, Androscoggin and Somerset counties.
The company estimates that about 48,500 customers lost power at some point as high wind knocked over trees and disrupted power lines.
CMP says storm debris in Franklin, Oxford and Somerset counties has made it difficult to get to rural service areas. It says a few customers could be without power until Tuesday morning.
Bangor Hydro Electric was reporting just a few dozen outages Monday morning, down from a high of 4,700.
