An estimated 3,670 Mainers are still without power.

As of 4 p.m., 1,180 in customers in Cumberland County still don’t have power. In other counties, many CMP customers are still in the dark including 1,010 in Sagadahoc County, 565 in Androscoggin County, 773 in Lincoln County, 90 in Oxford County and 52 in Kennebec County.

Gail Rice, a CMP spokesperson, said most service should be restored by tonight.

At the peak of outages after Sunday’s storm, more than 61,445 CMP customers had lost power.

Peter Dewitt, communications director for Time Warner Cable, said Sunday’s storm impacted service to 30,000 high-speed data customers and about 47,000 cable customers.

Dewitt said the company’s customers lost service primarily due to the power outages across the state. As of noon Tuesday, an estimated 7,000 high-speed data customers and 3,000 cable subscribers were still without service.

“We have made significant progress over the past 24 hours,” Dewitt said. “We’re working closely with utilities so we can get our services running in our customers’ homes as soon as possible.”

More than 11,600 homes and businesses in Maine are still without electricity as crews continue restoring power to customers who lost service after a powerful coastal storm packing rain, snow and sleet charged through New England.

Work to fix downed power lines continued Tuesday, a day after the storm left tens of thousands of people in the dark. At sea, swells topped out at more than 15 feet. Central Maine Power Co. said as of 8 a.m., 11,629 customers were still without power in southern and central Maine.

The storm raked the region Monday with driving rain, sleet, freezing rain and powerful winds. Dozens of schools closed because of power outages, and at least one traffic fatality was blamed on the weather.

“As we move into the later stages of storm repairs, the work becomes more and more labor-intensive as each repair brings back a smaller number of customers,” CMP spokesperson Gail Rice said. “We appreciate customers’ patience as we continue cleaning up the damage from Monday’s storm.”

As of 8 a.m., there were 5,702 accounts without power in Cumberland County, 1,533 in Lincoln County, 1,434 in Androscoggin County, 1,381 in Sagadahoc County, 653 in Kennebec County, 508 in York County and 428 in Oxford County.

Crews also have found more than 100 broken utility poles. CMP said it hopes to complete storm repairs by later today.
