PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - Maine utilities continue to restore power to homes and businesses after outages caused by high winds.

Emera Maine was working to restore electricity to more than 2,200 customers Friday morning, almost all of them in Aroostook County. That number dropped to several hundred and then climbed back up to about 700 early Friday afternoon.

Central Maine Power had 1,100 customers without power early Friday, most in Franklin and Somerset counties, but had reduced the number to under 400 by early afternoon.
