CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Ice is building up on trees and bringing down power lines in northern New England, leaving thousands of homes and business in Vermont and Maine without electricity.

Vtoutages.org lists more than 16,000 outages, most across northern Vermont. In Maine, Bangor Hydro Electric reported about 11,500 outages Sunday morning, mostly along the coast, and Central Maine Power was working to restore power to about 450 customers, most of them in York County.

The lights were still on in New Hampshire, but the state Emergency Operations Center was open to monitor the situation and support communities as needed.
