Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont may face power outages this week as a fast-moving storm approaches the region, the Associated Press reported.

The National Weather Service predicted that parts of New Hampshire and southern Vermont could get up to six inches of heavy wet snow, although the New Hampshire sea coast could expect mostly rain.

Last week, an ice storm left parts of northern New England without power.

More than 5,600 people in the Bangor area of Maine were still without power Monday morning. Bangor Hydro Electric spokeswoman Susan Faloon said the utility company had not released the crews from New Jersey, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and other areas that had helped restore service in the state in case they are needed again.

“We’re concerned about this storm we’re getting now,” Faloon told the AP, adding that some customers won’t have power restored until Wednesday.

Central Maine Power reported that about 7,100 customers were without power early Monday.

In New Hampshire, Public Service of New Hampshire had about 7,250 outages and New Hampshire Electric Co-op had 3,760 customers in the dark.
