A line of severe thunderstorms downed trees and power lines in central Aroostook County late Tuesday afternoon, leading to scattered power outages and some road closures.

In Bridgewater, trees were knocked down on the Boundary Line Road and the Bridgewater Corner Road making Bridgewater Port of Entry inaccessible from either side for some time last night. These photos were taken along the nearby Snow Road.
