PORTLAND, Maine - Utility workers restored power to more than 150,000 homes and businesses in Maine following a weekend nor'easter, but tens of thousands of customers remained without Monday.

The storm brought as much as a foot of heavy snow and gusts topping 50 mph that knocked out electricity to more than 225,000 customers Saturday and Sunday in Maine, the hardest-hit state in New England.

About 44,000 Central Maine Power customers remained without power Monday evening, along with 1,500 Versant Power customers in eastern and northern Maine. About 900 customers were without power in New Hampshire.
