Rockport — In Rockport, a downed branch on Commercial Street caused a number of homes and businesses to lose power Nov. 1.

The branch fell on power lines across from Offshore Restaurant just before 10 a.m. Offshore owner Phil Johnson said the power flickered several times before going out.

The Central Maine Power outage map showed numerous outages on Commercial Street and throughout downtown Rockport. Outages have also been reported on Beech Hill Road, Main Street and Union Street into Camden.

Rockport Town Clerk Wyatt Summers said power was knocked out at the Town Office and the Police and Fire Station. He said all town buildings are operating on a generator.

The Mid-Solid Waste Facility will be closed Saturday, Nov. 2, due to lack of electricity.

As of 2 p.m., CMP listed 437 customers without power in Rockport and Camden.
