BANGOR, Maine (AP) - Utility crews are making strides to restore power to parts of Maine hit hardest by outages from trees and limbs that fell as tropical storm Arthur swept through the state Saturday.

Emera Maine officials say about 8,300 households remain without power Sunday - most of them in Washington and Hancock counties.

That number is less than half the 19,000 households and business without power at the peak of the outages.

Emera spokesman Bob Potts says he expects the Bangor area and Aroostook County will be fully restored by Sunday night.

He said households in Washington County and the Machias area may be without power until late Tuesday.

Power to Hancock County households should be fully restored by late Monday, he estimates.
