A thank you sign hangs on a tree in Dedham on Monday morning after power was restored from the spring nor'easter that hit Maine last Thursday night into Friday leaving nearly 250,000 Mainers without power.

Power has been restored to most Mainers, but scattered outages linger days after the state was hit by back-to-back storms.

As of 12:30 p.m. Thursday, Emera Maine still had 477 customers without power in its service area, with the bulk of those in Penobscot and coastal Hancock counties.

Central Maine Power had only 31 outages spread across nine counties.

The outages from Monday’s storm come on the heels of a spring nor’easter that slammed the state last Thursday night into Friday morning that left nearly 250,000 Mainers without power at its peak.

Monday’s storm brought high winds throughout the state that gusted up to nearly 60 mph in places and heavy rain with some towns seeing more than 2 inches.
