Long Wait For Power Restoration Generating Frustration in Maine

Nov 6, 2017

Some Mainers still waiting for power after last week's storm are frustrated with Central Maine Power. 

Harpswell resident Howard Marshall says wires are still lying in his street, but the area hasn't been listed as without power on CMP's website for days.

"I understand it's a lot of damage and everything," Marshall says. "My main frustration is they're claiming that they've reconnected all of us."

Central Maine Power spokeswoman Gail Rice says even though some streets might not be listed, CMP is confident with its outage numbers. 

Rice says CMP has dispatched extra service crews to the hardest hit areas, including Harpswell, Freeport, and Brunswick.
