Hundreds of utility customers were still in the dark late Sunday night after a powerful windstorm on Friday knocked out power across the state.

Central Maine Power reported 1,055 outages just before 10 p.m. Sunday, a significant decrease from the 4,257 outages it reported late Sunday afternoon.

Emera Maine, which serves northern and eastern Maine, reduced the number of outages from 1,583 late Sunday afternoon to 475 by 10 p.m..

Judy Long, a spokeswoman for Emera Maine, said everyone in the company’s service area should have their power restored by Monday night.

The number of statewide outages went down quickly throughout the day. About 19,000 customers in Maine were without power on Sunday morning.

Most of the CMP outages were clustered in Somerset, Franklin and Oxford counties. Emera Maine said that Ellsworth, Tremont and Somesville, all towns near or on Mount Desert Island, had the most power outages Sunday night.

Friday’s windstorm brought down tree limbs on lines for the second round of mass outages this fall. Last month’s storm was even more severe, with about 180,000 Mainers losing power.
