As of Wednesday morning, Central Maine Power is reporting that about 18,500 of their 659,713 customers are without power. Leading up to today's storm they said more than 400 Central Maine Power crews and contractors were ready to go as soon as the wind started causing outages.

Wind gusts are expected to peak at around 30 mph today so more outages are still possible. Winds eventually die down this afternoon but temps will remain fairly static at around 45-58 degrees for Central Maine.

The end of the week looks a little bit nicer as we'll see a mostly sunny Thursday and Friday with temps in the low to mid 50s both days.

In the meantime, here are the links to CMP and Versant's outage maps and estimated restoration times.
