CVPS raises storm damage estimate

The state’s largest utility has increased its damage estimate for last week’s storm.
Central Vermont Public Service now says repairs will cost $3.5 million.

More than 60,000 customers lost power in the nor’easter, which dumped more than a foot of snow in some parts of Vermont, and did its worst damage in Rutland. High winds blew down dozens of trees, signs and utility poles.

Representatives of the Federal Emergency Management Agency toured Rutland last week, to determine how much the storm cost city government.

Rutland could be reimbursed for up to 75% of its police, fire and public works overtime costs.
