PORTLAND, Maine — A powerful late-season storm with heavy snow and strong winds has dumped up to 20 inches of snow in western Maine and left thousands of homes and businesses in the dark.

The National Weather Service said gusts of 40 mph or greater knocked out power for thousands. But utility crews were making progress. Emera Maine reported about 800 power outages and Central Maine Power had about 900 outages Thursday afternoon.

Meteorologists in Gary and Caribou reported 20 inches in Dixfield in western Maine, and Sherman and Lincoln in northern Maine. Only a couple of inches fell on southern Maine.

The storm prompted Gov. Paul LePage to order all state offices to open two hours later than normal, except in Aroostook County, where state offices were closed for the day.
