Durham Get & Go Accepting IOU’s During Power Outage
The wind storm that blew through late Sunday night is long gone but the effects are still being felt across Maine. As power crews work around the clock to get the power back on some towns are still without power making it hard to get cash.
One Durham gas station is doing something that hasn't been done in years. They're accepting IOU's from customers so they can keep their generators running, or get some warm food. The store is letting people borrow $20 at a time.
Residents of Durham have already borrowed about $2,500 worth of gas and goods so far, and several thankful customers have already paid back their debts.
