Thousands of Central Maine Power customers in Cumberland County lost power for a few hours Saturday afternoon.

The two biggest areas that lost power were in Portland, which listed over 6,000 customers without power as of 1:30 p.m. Saturday, and in Falmouth, where more than 5,000 customers lost power.

By 4 p.m., power to all customers had been restored, CMP said.

CMP spokesperson Jonathan Breed said the outage was caused by a fault in part of Maine’s transmission system.
