PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - Crews are restoring power to the last of the customers left in the dark by a powerful fall storm more than a week ago.

The storm peaked in the early morning of Oct. 30, leaving nearly a half million homes and businesses without power in Maine. The state’s two main power companies said there were only about 400 customers left without power on Tuesday night.

Hundreds of crews have worked to restore power around the state. Central Maine Power is reporting on its website that more than half of the remaining outages are in Lincoln County. There also were still more than 100 outages remaining in Cumberland County on Tuesday night.
