PORTLAND — Service has been restored to homes and businesses that lost power due to the storm.

Last night, 366 Central Maine Power Co. customers – mostly in Oxford County – were without power. They got their power back before morning, according to Gail Rice, a spokeswoman for the utility.

“We had relatively few outages,” she said. “Essentially, the crews were keeping up with the outages as they happened.”

The storm didn’t bring the ice and heavy snows that can topple tree limbs down onto power lines. High winds between 35 mph to nearly 50 mph characterized the storm, which may have reached blizzard conditions in some parts of the state.

During mid-morning Monday, the utiltiy had to contend with 3,500 outages. Most were restored by 1 p.m., but the numbers peaked to 4,000 as the winds backed to the north-northwest.
