Vermont utility working to restore power across state
WOODSTOCK, Vt. (AP) — Vermont’s largest electric utility says it’s working to restore power across the state following a snowstorm, but that some customers may not get power back until the weekend.
Green Mountain Power tells the Valley News over 15,000 customers were without power late Wednesday. According to GMP, crews have restored power for about 80,000 customers. The utility says most customers will regain power by Friday night but that “outages in the hardest-hit areas of Vermont may last into Saturday or in some cases Sunday.”
GMP President and CEO Mary Powell says the utility is still receiving information about new outages as poor conditions continue. Powell says crews are “working hard” to restore power.
