ELLSWORTH — A storm that was expected to bring up to 14 inches of snow to parts of Maine swept through Hancock County Tuesday afternoon and evening, seeming to peter out Wednesday morning.
It was the second big snowfall of the season, as well as the second big weather event of the week for the area.
A wind and rain storm Sunday also knocked out power to many homes.
As of Wednesday morning, 560 Hancock County users of Emera Maine power still didn’t have power restored, according to the utility’s website. The only other county in the northern part of the state with any outages reported was Washington County, where two users had no power.
A forecast from the National Weather Service showed the snow should end by 1 p.m. Wednesday.
It will be followed by more heavy wind. The rest of the week will be clear, though the agency is indicating a slight chance of snow this weekend.
