According to Bob Potts, the spokesperson for Emera Maine

Damage to the system has been extensive, especially in Hancock County where more than 10,000 people are still in the dark. As workers blanket hard hit areas at first light, more information will become available in terms of storm damage and more accurate restoration times. Some customers, especially those in remote areas, are expected to be without power into Tuesday.

Emera Maine customers may report outages or ask questions by calling the Emera Maine Customer Service Center at (207) 973-2020 or 1-855- EMERA11 (1-855-363-7211)
