It was a wild night here in Aroostook County and Western New Brunswick! I hope you fared the storm well!

There were severe thunderstorms in the area last night and a tornado is thought to have touched down in the Northern Maine town of Oxbow, although that hasn't yet been confirmed by the National Weather Service.

Much of Aroostook County was without power for hours last evening. According to Maine Public Service, some 5,300 residents were without power in the towns of Mars Hill, Bridgewater, Monticello, Ludlow, Oakfield, Island Falls, Patten, and Sherman. Crews were out in force for much of the night restoring power and clearing debris.

I've compiled some pictures of storm damage in our area.
