PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — Central Maine Power said Saturday afternoon that all but 469 customers have their electricity back in the aftermath of the Thanksgiving storm that at some point left more than 157,000 homes and businesses in the dark.

The utility says most of the customers that are still without power are located in southern and coastal areas and most are on seasonal roads, peninsulas, islands, and other hard-to-reach locations.

The peak of the outages was reported around 8:30 a.m. on Thanksgiving Day.

Damage from the storm that dumped more than a foot of heavy, wet snow was particularly severe in York, Cumberland, Lincoln, and Sagadahoc counties.
