Power restored in Maine after snowstorm

AUGUSTA, Maine — Central Maine Power has completed the restoration of electricity for the last handful of homes and businesses in the dark. Now the utility is weighing whether to send crews to help out in other states hammered by the October nor’easter.

CMP spokesman John Carroll says work wrapped up around noon Tuesday in York County.

At one point, the company had about 145,000 customers without power on Sunday after the storm dumped as much as 20 inches of snow on parts of the state. CMP said its restoration effort included 200 two-person line repair crews and 110 tree crews, backed up by support personnel.

CMP has received requests for help from other states. Crews will get a night of rest before a decision is made on whether to dispatch some workers elsewhere.
