We've been watching Hurricane Lee all week, tracking its path as it was projected to reach the Gulf of Maine. 

The hurricane became a tropical system Friday and has since been downgraded to a nor'easter, but that doesn't mean it doesn't still pack a punch. 

Versant reported at 2:30 p.m. Sunday that about 7,000 customers were still without power. As of 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Central Maine Power reported that about 10,000 customers were without power. Eastern Maine Electric Cooperative, which serves eastern portions of Maine from Houlton to Calais, reported about 500 without power as of 2:30 p.m. Sunday.

NEWS CENTER Maine had crews across the state Saturday keeping an eye on the storm as it crept along the coastline, bringing heavy winds and rain to many locations. 

Here's what we saw in different parts of the state.
