PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - Hurricane Arthur is gone but its effects are still rippling through New England, where nearly 11,000 homes and businesses in Maine and 2,100 customers in Vermont are without power.

The winds and heavy rains associated with Arthur brought down trees and wires throughout the region.

Emera Maine, the state’s biggest utility, says crews are working around the clock to restore service from Caribou to Stonington and Corinna to Lubec. By Saturday night, almost 11,000 customers were without power, down from 19,000 earlier in the day. The company warned it could take until Tuesday for power to be fully restored in Washington County.

In Vermont, about 1,000 customers served by Green Mountain Power remained without electricity Saturday night, down from 2,100 earlier in the day.
