More than 400,000 without power, no scheduled restoration times

Updated: Monday October 30th, 2017 at 11:42pm.

(NEWS CENTER) — More than 400,000 Maine homes and businesses find themselves without power Monday.

Central Maine Power officials said early Monday there would be little to no power restored for the rest of the day. Instead, CMP crews are focused on cleaning up downed lines and making sure roads are safe, spokesperson Gail Rice said.

CMP was reporting more than 300,000 clients without power Monday morning, and that number climbed to nearly 500,000 by the afternoon. Rice said there were no estimated restoration times as crews clean-up. She said hospitals are CMP's first priority.


CMP dealing with thousands of outages

Winds gusted more than 60 mph early Monday morning causing significant damage.

Roads were closed in towns across the state. Trees and power lines were knocked down.

Several flights out of Portland Jetport were cancelled. Amtrak Downeaster train also canceled lines due to power outages.

Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor released this statement Monday afternoon, unsure if they would regain full power by the end of the night.
