Vermont utility crews are continuing to chip away at power outages caused by last week’s ice storm.
As of Tuesday morning, utilities were reporting that about 3,700 customers were still without power, most of them in Windham County.
At the peak, about 40,000 Vermont customers were without power.
The Central Vermont Public Service Corp. says it has brought in extra line crews from other states and Canada to help with the clean up.
Meanwhile, Gov. Jim Douglas on Monday declared the state’s four southern counties disaster areas. The state declaration could form the basis for an application for federal disaster relief.
