Central Maine Power is carefully monitoring the anticipated path of Tropical Storm Isaias for any impacts this week in Maine. The company is preparing for what could be thousands of outages.

Current forecasts call for heavy rain late Tuesday and early Wednesday with the likelihood of isolated wind gusts reaching 40-50 mph.

Tom Depeter, Vice President, Electric Operations said, “We have been watching the development of Isaias carefully, and are planning to respond to potential outages that could be caused by wind and rain. We will continue to monitor today and tomorrow, adjusting crews and equipment to meet predicted conditions.”
