Thousands of Vermonters are without power on Thursday, mostly on the eastern side of the state. Central Vermont Public Service reports that 4,700 customers were without service Thursday afternoon, with most of them on the eastern side of Central Vermont. That’s down from 8,500 earlier in the day.
Spokesman Steve Costello says the vast majority of the outages are in Windsor County. Washington Electric Co-operative reported roughly 1,000 customers without power Thursday morning, with many of them in Orange County. The outages are due to heavy snow bringing down power lines or poles.
