Winter Storm Bruce leaves thousands in Vermont without power

Heavy snow spurred by Winter Storm Bruce and cold overnight temperatures caused nearly 90,000 outages to Green Mountain Power customers across Vermont.

The utility provided that updated figure in a news release Wednesday morning, after estimating 76,000 outages at the end of Tuesday. Crews worked overnight to restore power to more than 63,000 customers, according to a news release issued Wednesday morning, but the process of restoring power to everyone could take until Sunday.

"The damage is widespread, the conditions are still hazardous, we are still getting new outages," utility President and CEO Mary Powell stated in the Wednesday release. "We want our customers to know we are working hard, but given the severe damage over hundreds of miles, getting the job done could take days.”
