AUGUSTA (AP) – Maine utilities say high winds have caused more than 10,000 power outages in the state, including roughly 2,400 in the Rockland area alone.

Central Maine Power Co. on Monday said nearly 9,900 customers are without service due to the wind toppling tree limbs. Outside of the Rockland area, service interruptions are scattered, with Portland, Farmington and Alfred among the hard-hit areas.

Bangor Hydro-Electric Co. says 118 customers are affected, most of them in Washington and Hancock counties.

The National Weather Service says wind will gust up to 45 mph Monday before dying down later in the day.
