    CMP restores power across Androscoggin County after Wednesday night storm

    December 2, 2022 - Christopher Wheelock, Sun Journal, Lewiston, Maine


      Dec. 1—AUBURN — Power was restored to more than a thousand homes and businesses throughout the day Thursday after an overnight wind storm knocked out electricity in several areas.

      More than 1,500 customers of Central Maine Power awoke without power Thursday morning, with New Auburn being the biggest area impacted.

      CMP listed 778 customers without power due to a fallen tree on Mill Street but by 2 p.m. Thursday, power had been restored to most in that area. Power was also restored in Poland where 474 CMP customers had lost power due to a tree that was felled during the storm.

      Auburn Housing Authority executive director Martin Szydlowski confirmed that three of their properties were affected by the power outage, including Barker Mill Arms complex, which has approximately 111 units. Szydlowski said the complex at 143 Mill St. was one of the affected buildings, but that it has a back-up generator and was able to provide residents with heat, hall lights and at least one working elevator. He said power had been reported out around 7:30 p.m. Wednesday.

      Sherwood Heights Elementary school in new Auburn cancelled classes Thursday due to the power outage.

      By dinner time Thursday, only a handful of outages — 83 — remained in Andrsocoggin County, the bulk of them in Wales and Lisbon.

      More high winds were in the forecast Thursday night, but mostly in the areas of Oxford and Northern Franklin counties.
