Wild Weather During the Heat 

The hardest hit area appears to be around Augusta, where the storm brought down trees and power lines, though Downeast wasn’t spared either.

Winds gusted up to 45-miles per hour, as the storm moved from western Maine, through the capitol, and into the Rockland area, before blowing out to sea.

As of Thursday morning, C.M.P. was restoring power to about 425 customers in the Augusta area, and another 1,200 in the Rockland section of the coast.

In searsmont, it was a tough commute with powerlines down, and trees toppled in the roadway. The Moody Mountain Road, along with Routes 131 and 173 were all closed, as firefighters and utility crews cleaned up the area.

Some residents had to wait at the fire station, because fallen trees had blocked the roads to their homes.

One car on the Moody Mountain Road had an especially tough time, they were trapped between fallen trees, reportedly stuck in their car for over three hours.

No one inside the car was injured.

Crews were out on the streets doing cleanup well into Thursday morning.
