BANGOR, Maine — Repair crews from Emera Maine and Central Maine Power worked all day Wednesday and into Thursday to restore power to the nearly 50,000 customers affected this week when heavy snow and high winds took down utility lines across the state. Just over 700 remained without power at 2 p.m. Thursday.

Central Maine Power restored power to most of the more than 40,000 of its customers who lost power in Tuesday’s nor’easter. By Thursday afternoon only 709 remained without power, according to CMP’s website.

York County customers numbered 684 of the total and others were listed in Oxford and Sagadahoc counties.

Just 10 of the nearly 8,000 Emera Maine customers who lost power remained in the dark as of mid-afternoon, according to that company’s website.
