Powerful storm hammers the area
A powerful storm is now sweeping across the state.
It's bringing down trees and powerlines and has created hundreds of power outages.
Some schools are also closing early because of the loss of power.
Along with power outages, there's also some damage reported.
One business in Old town had its roof peeled away by the wind and some trees have also fallen onto homes.
People should prepare for outages if they aren't already experiencing them and as always, stay away from downed power lines.

Craig Colson became news director and anchor at WVII ABC 7 and WFVX Fox Bangor in December of 2012. He began his career in broadcasting in 1985 while working as a news photographer at another Bangor television station. Craig worked his way up through the ranks and became the main anchor for the nightly newscasts before leaving in 2009. At that point, he became news director for four local radio stations and delivered the morning news before taking on his current position.

Craig grew up in a "news family" and followed in the footsteps of his father who was also a news director and anchor. His brother is also a news photographer at a Boston television station.

Craig's career has brought him all over-reporting from everywhere from Washington D.C. to Red Square in Moscow, Russia. When he isn't reporting the news, Craig can be found taking on new adventures with his two daughters or exploring the coast of Maine in his kayak. His other passion is making furniture in his shop or just about anything involving the outdoors.
