PHOTOS: More Than a Foot of Snow Slams Maine, Knocks Out Power

A weekend snowstorm dropped several inches of snow across parts of northern New England. Plymouth, Maine, had a foot of snow. Canton, Maine, received 15 inches. Across much of the state, amounts varied from 3 inches to nearly a foot and a half.

Thousands are still without power from the Bangor area to the central part of the state, which will be risky as arctic air pushes its way into the region early this week, sending temperatures plummeting.

However, as of Monday evening, restoration efforts were going really well, according to Maine Emergency Management Agency Spokesperson Lynette Miller.

"In the northern and eastern parts of the state, outages are below 1,000," Miller said. "They are almost where they were before the storm."

The potential for another large storm for the Northeast is being monitored for development.

The state's biggest concern for the week remains carbon monoxide, as residents try to stay warm. There have been multiple cases of carbon monoxide poisoinings in the last few days, according to Miller.
