The powerful fall storm brought heavy rain and strong, damaging winds to several New England states. Over 400,000 lost power in Maine within a few hours, a number which surpassed the 1998 ice storm. E.S. Boulos (ESB) crews were placed on standby beforehand and responded rapidly to Central Maine Power’s call for assistance after the winds died down. Over the next ten days, ESB line crews encountered a variety of damaged electrical infrastructure and helped restore power safely and efficiently.
