BANGOR, Maine (AP) - Utility crews in Maine are heading south to assist with power outages caused by a massive snowstorm pummeling the mid-Atlantic region.

Emera Maine says it packed up a dozen of its bucket trucks Friday morning and sent off line workers, supervisors and a mechanic to assist crews from utility company Delmarva Power.

Delmarva serves customers throughout Delaware and along the eastern shore of Maryland.

Emera spokesman Scott Richards says his crews are used to working in extreme weather and can help restore power.

Emera Maine and Delmarva Power are part of the North Atlantic Mutual Aid Group, a group of utilities that provide assistance to each other during large storms and power outages.

Emera Maine President and COO Alan Richardson says this is an opportunity to “pay it forward.”
