Power outages linger after overnight storm
The majority of Mainers who lost power Monday had it restored by the late afternoon.
High winds from the overnight storm knocked out power for more than 30,000 early Monday morning.
By mid-day that number fell, leaving around 11,000 without power.
As of 1:15 p.m., Central Maine Power reported more than 3,000 customers without power, with the most outages in York and Lincoln counties.
Versant Power said over 8,000 of its customers were without power just before 1:30 p.m., with many of those clustered along the Down East coast.
By 4 o'clock, the total number fell to less than five thousand.
At that time, CMP reported 500 customers without power, and Versant was reporting 4,300.
