Widespread Power Outages Expected for Monday
After hundreds of thousands of Mainers just got their power back after days without, experts say it's time to brace for another likely scenario of widespread outages.
Now that the most recent nor'easter has moved on and we've had a couple 'mild' days, another storm system is due to hit Maine Monday into Monday night bringing with it high winds and heavy rains.
According to WABI, the storm will produce high winds pretty much state wide with the highest winds gusting in coastal Maine. Because of loose wet soil from mild temps and recent precipitation, downed trees and lines are likely.
Not only is wind going to an issue, but because of already high spring water levels, some flooding is likely to occur in parts of the state.
