Vt. outages remain, but crews making progress

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) Thousands of Vermont utility customers are still without electricity in northwestern Vermont, more than three days after an ice storm dropped trees on power lines or the heavy ice made the lines collapse.

As of late Tuesday, the Vermont Electric Cooperative still had almost 3,400 customers without power.

Most of the remaining outages are in Franklin County with lesser numbers in Chittenden, Orleans and Lamoille counties.

Green Mountain Power, Vermont's largest electric utility, said Tuesday that more than 38,000 customers lost power during the storm and have since been restored.

GMP crews are now helping other utilities restore power to their customers.

On Tuesday, the Red Cross had four shelters open while the town of Barton had its own shelter.
