BANGOR, Maine — Power has been restored to more than 4,300 Bangor Hydro Electric Co. customers in Penobscot and Hancock counties whose power went out shortly after 3 p.m.

Although service was restored to most of the affected customers by late afternoon, it took more than an hour longer to isolate the problem that kept another 912 customers served by the Milford substation in the dark.

Power to the remaining accounts was restored by 7 p.m. according the utility’s Live Outage and Restoration Map.
