Midcoast communities brace for another powerful storm
HARPSWELL (WGME) – Communities that just got power back Monday, are preparing to lose it again with Tuesday's storm.
Maine's coast is expected to experience strong winds and near-blizzard conditions.
Communities up and down the Midcoast could see the brunt of this storm, with high winds and more than a foot of snow possible. Many say they're preparing for every scenario.
Last-minute repairs are keeping the team at Brunswick Home and Garden busy before the storm.
Winter essentials, like snow blowers, are taking a beating this winter.
Generators are also ready to go, with the possibility of power outages with this nor'easter.
From Brunswick to Harpswell, the Midcoast is expected to get hit hard.
Road Commissioner Ron Ponziani says they can handle the snow, but high winds could pose a bigger issue because of how exposed the town is.
"The wind comes right off the ocean, and when it does, there goes whatever is in the way," Ponziani said.
Back in Brunswick, snow blowers lined up next to lawnmowers, the first sign this storm may be the end of a seemingly never ending winter
Central Maine Power says they're preparing for this storm as well, bringing in extra crews in case there are any outages.
