Green Mountain Power says storm outages being restored; about 3,700 still dark


RUTLAND, Vermont — Vermont electric utilities are reporting that almost 4,000 customers are still without power after a series of powerful thunderstorms knocked down trees and power lines.

The vast majority of the outages from the storms that rolled through late Thursday with winds up to 70 miles an hour are being reported by Green Mountain Power along the U.S. Route 4 corridor in Rutland and Windsor counties.

GMP says power to more than 20,000 customers was restored overnight.

GMP spokeswoman Dorothy Schnure said late Thursday that more than 100 outside electrical workers and tree trimmers were working with 100 of the utility's own line workers to restore power.

The utility says some of its customers could be without power through the weekend.
