PITTSFIELD, Maine (AP) - The National Weather Service says it issued a rare tornado warning for part of Maine including Pittsfield as a series of thunderstorms moved across the state.

Meteorologist Andy Pohl says weather radar indicated conditions were ideal for a tornado in southeastern Somerset County early Tuesday evening.

A number of thunderstorm warnings also were issued as unsettled weather led to a string of storms across parts of the state. At one point, Central Maine Power reported that more than 4,000 customers lost power because of downed power lines caused by powerful gusts.
