Ten days after a significant windstorm slammed the area with over 21,000 outages, power has been restored to all Lincoln County households, according to the report from Central Maine Power Co. issued Wednesday at 7:18 p.m.
The storm pummeled Lincoln County during the overnight hours of Oct. 29-30, with wind speeds estimated in the 50- to 60-mph range. Coastal areas and highlands were especially hard-hit. Over 70 Lincoln County roads were closed due to storm damage, according to the Lincoln County Emergency Management Agency, hampering repair crews trying to reach downed power lines.
Every town in Lincoln County sustained power outages during the event, according to a CMP report following the storm.
The CMP storm recovery team, numbering more than 3,300 personnel at the height of the recovery effort, worked around the clock to restore service to affected customers, according to CMP.
