Maine's second biggest lake looked and sounded like the ocean during the recent Nor'easter.

 

WMTW 8 got some great footage from Stephen Schmitt in Standish. He filmed the lake acting like an ocean!

 

There were reports of boats that sank or were broken from their mooring. The winds were the real force of this Nor'easter. The strongest winds of this massive storm that pounded the Northeast happened Wednesday morning. Provincetown, Massachusetts, was the winner with winds up to 97 mph, more than 85 mph in Scituate, and more than 60 mph in Connecticut. Maine was windy, but it wasn't THAT windy!

But that doesn't mean that Maine got off easy. According to NECN, businesses Lil’s Café and Maine Squeeze were forced to close and some like Maine Meat Butcher shop had to open late because they had no power. But for a Nor'easter, about 27,000 customers lost power, but CMP was all over it and by Wednesday night, that number was down to around 5,000 customers.

About a third of the town of Kittery was in the dark for most of Wednesday morning.

A taste of things to come...
