PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- As of 10:00 Tuesday morning, Coast Guard officials opened Portland Harbor and gave the all clear for boats to re-enter the port.
A few short-lived sunny breaks in the sky allowed crews to inspect the harbor and assess any damage Hurricane Sandy may have caused. Besides a few boats breaking away, Coast Guard Lt. Nick Barrow tells NEWS CENTER everything else is in order.
After ferry services ended at 5:45 Monday night, Casco Bay Lines was able to get the first ferry out to Downbay at 5:45 Tuesday morning without a problem. The ferry captain had spoken with Coast Guard officials Monday night and decided the captain would use his own discretion on whether to start the ferry service on time on Tuesday.
