PORTLAND, MAINE (AP) -- It's snowing in Maine.

The precipitation is from a fast moving storm expected to drop heavy, wet snow in parts of Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire.

It comes a week after an ice storm left parts of northern New England in the dark.

Utility companies in Maine and Vermont are bracing for more outages, with forecasters predicting the band of snow could dump 10 or more inches in some northern areas.

A spokeswoman for Bangor Hydro Electric says the number of outages is around 600.

But with the snow falling he said the utility 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.

She says some customers won't have their electricity restored until Wednesday. Most are in Hancock County, which she described as "a huge mess."

Central Maine Power reports that about 1,100 customers are currently without power.

Vermont Electric Cooperative has just a few outages.

Green Mountain Power says there are 3,370 customers without power.
