BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - Maine and the rest of New England are gearing up for a storm that could produce rain and winds of up to 60 miles per hour.

The storm is expected to arrive tonight and last into tomorrow.

A high wind warning has also been issued for parts of the state.

Utilities in the region are warning folks about potential of downed trees and power lines.

"We're anticipating that the storm is going to impact our customers in Hancock and Washington counties the most based on several different forecast models we're looking at so, we've been putting resources in place for a few days to do our best to make sure we're ahead of this to get folks lights turned back on should the storm have the impact that we think that it may," says Bob Potts, Spokesman for Emera Maine.

Emera Maine wants to remind folks to never touch or drive over a downed power line.
