PORTLAND, Maine — Nearly 7,000 people in Portland were without power Monday afternoon due to a transformer failure on Bishop Street, Central Maine Power spokesperson Catherine Hartnett told NEWS CENTER Maine.

As of 5:45 p.m., Central Maine Power reports 2,145 people are still without power, all but three of which are in Cumberland County. Hartnett said CMP will try two approaches to get power back. The first would restore power in 15-30 minutes. If that doesn't work, another fix would get power back in an hour and a half. 

As of 7:20 p.m., CMP lists 0 outages in Cumberland County.
