Nearly 4,000 customers in Maine were without power at one point, most of them in Portland.
In New Hampshire, damage such as trees falling on houses and overturned boats was reported in Northwood, Andover, and other towns.

Our crews are working to repair damage following a storm that caused scattered power outages. Strong winds brought trees onto power lines, breaking utility poles and bringing down wires.
