A storm that brought powerful gusts and heavy rain to the area kept local emergency crews busy responding to reports of felled trees and downed wires.

A tree that fell across a Waldo road blocked traffic for a short time before it was cleared the morning of Wednesday, Nov. 27.

The tree fell across and blocked Kendall Corner Road near the intersection of Bonne Terre Road shortly after 9:30 a.m. The Waldo Fire Department was dispatched to the area and quickly removed the obstruction.

On Nickels Road in Searsport, emergency crews slowed traffic for a brief time just before 10 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 27, to remove a wire that was down in the roadway.

Searsport was called out again shortly after 1:30 p.m. to Bowen Road for a tree that had fallen onto the power lines. Emergency crews blocked off the area until a crew from Central Maine Power could arrive to remove the tree.

Islesboro Senior Officer Fred Porter said the island community weathered the storm relatively well with the main issues related to trees falling into wires. He said a tree fell through the wires on West Bay Road, followed by another tree on the wires on Pendleton Point Road.

Central Maine Power is worked to repair lines on Derby Road after a tree fell onto the wires and shut the road down in the afternoon.

The National Weather Service issued a wind advisory and flood watch for the county as the storm system was expected to dump up to 3 inches of rain or more across the state with winds blowing between 20 and 30 mph with gusts up to 50 mph.
