PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - More than 4,000 people in Maine remain without power Saturday morning after high winds and heavy winds strafed the region.

The nasty weather was courtesy of Hurricane Arthur which, while weakening as it headed north, stillo brought down trees throughout Northern New England.

Emera Maine, the state’s biggest utility, says crews are working around the clock to restore service. The company warns that continued strong winds could slow restoration.

In Vermont, just under 1,000 people served by Green Mountain Power remained without electricity Saturday morning.
