Emera Maine’s Storm Response Team has been tracking the weather forecast in anticipation of the first major storm of the 2015-2016 season – a storm that is expected to bring 6 – 10 inches of snow to Northern Maine Thursday into Friday.

The utility is readying trucks, stock and appropriate personnel as they prepare for the possibility of power outages.

A nearly full slate of field crews, customer service, dispatch, and other personnel are standing by. Emera Maine's Storm Response Team will continue to monitor the storm’s track and modify staffing plans as needed.

As always customers are reminded to stay clear of fallen power lines and trees near or touching them.
