I'm from Portland Maine. There are no Somali bantu's here and it's not mostly reer Djibouti. However, Lewiston, Maine has a decent amount of Somali Bantu, but not here. I've lived in Portland for 18 years, never saw one in my life before.
I would not put Portland as 5th too, we have ~4000-5000 Somalis.
It's a great city. I'd recommend that you guys pay it a visit. Great weather in the Summer, Spring and Fall, very scenic because it's a peninsula, has a very low crime rate, and the Somalis there are great.
It's a very non-diverse city, but it's all the white people are liberal coastal elite types. I'd say it's 84% White, 7% Somali, 3% African, 2% Arab, 2% Asians, 1% Hispanic.
