KATAHDIN REGION – Utility crews have been trying to figure out what caused a power outage this morning in the Katahdin Area.
Emera Maine reports close to 1,000 customers lost their power. The crews have been traveling the power lines looking for the cause and they suspect a tree weakened by the recent stormy weather probably brought it down on the lines.
They’ll fix it once they find the problem. In the meantime, folks are reminded to stay away from any downed lines they see. One never knows when they’re energized.
