Crazy Photos Show Major Maine Route Leading to Sugarloaf Almost Completely Gone
The Monday, December 18, "Grinch" storm was nothing short of devastating to communities all around the Pine Tree State.
From trees down across lines and roadways to flood waters raging across the state, it will be days if not weeks and months of cleanup and repair work for hundreds of tree and line crews.
We're now getting word that the major route into and out of Carrabasset Valley has almost completely washed away.
Thanks to a user submission on our socials, we have photos of a near-complete washout of Route 27 in the area of Kingfield, Maine.
The storm caused widespread damage across the state with downed trees and power lines, and wiping out power to hundreds of thousands.
As of Tuesday, December 19, morning, CMP reported that there were still over 300,000 without power. According to WGME, many Mainers could be without power for days. The news station also noted that the peak amount of power outages during this storm nearly rivaled the outages from a windstorm in 2017.
WMTW has a helpful list of road closures and washout areas to look out for, including places in Augusta, Scarborough and Westbrook. You can see it on their website for more info.
