About 3,000 Central Maine Power customers in Woolwich, Georgetown and Arrowsic lost power from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Thursday while the company repairs a damaged telephone pole in Woolwich.

Power was restored to all customers as of 12:30 p.m., said CMP Spokesperson Catharine Hartnett.

Hartnett said the pole was damaged in Tuesday’s wind storm that cut power for hundreds of CMP customers in the southern Midcoast.

“We can often make temporary repairs to restore power,” said Hartnett. “Once everyone has their power restored, then we can go back and make more permanent repairs.”

Hartnett said the cross arm of a telephone pole, which hold the power lines in place, was broken by the wind. Wind gusts topped 50 mph on Tuesday, causing over 700 CMP customers in Sagadahoc County alone to lose power.
