    Operations Director Mark Hyland discussed the effort to restore power to those affected by ice storm (Published Sunday, Jan. 26, 2014)

    (NECN) - In Maine, more than 25,000 homes and businesses remain in the dark after an ice storm.

    Tuesday's storm has slowed utility crews working to restore power to those still in the dark.

    Mark Hyland, operations director for the Maine Emergency Management Agency, joined NECN to discuss the ongoing issues in Maine.

    "They're making good progress, but the weather really has slowed the crews," said Hyland. "We're getting quite a bit of snow in Central and Southern Maine, and that's where most of the damage has been to the power lines."
