Only a few scattered power outages were expected to remain Friday morning as Central Maine Power Co. scrambled  to restore service to its customers.

As of 9 tonight, about 1,500 customers were still without power – a huge decrease from Sunday night when outages peaked at nearly 187,000.

“We expect to make our goal,” Tom Depeter, director of operations at CMP, said. “… By morning, if there’s anything left, it will only be a few scattered outages in rural areas or on camp roads.”

York County had the most customers without power Thursday with 1,170, followed by Cumberland County with 227.
