CMP: Storm knocked out power to 64,000 homes and businesses

A windstorm that swept through Maine on Friday, bringing gusts over 50 miles per hour, knocked out power to 64,000 homes and businesses in Central Maine Power's service area, the company reported. The number of outages peaked at more than 37,000 late on Friday afternoon. The bulk of the repairs were completed over the weekend.
On Saturday at 5 p.m., Central Maine Power reported passing the 95 percent mark in its recovery from Friday's windstorm with roughly 1,900 customer outages remaining. The company expected to restore power, ending with a handful of customers in coastal towns between Harpswell and Boothbay.
