Power Being Restored In Wake Of Storm

Power is gradually being restored after a storm brought rain, snow and some local flooding to Vermont.  By early Sunday, utilities reported fewer than 500 customers were still without electricity.

That number had climbed into the thousands Saturday as crews responded to outages caused by heavy rains. Green Mountain Power, the state's largest utility, says it has restored power to approximately 12,000 customers.

As of Sunday morning emergency management officials reported Vermont Route 128 in Essex and the Maidstone state highway remained closed due to water over the roadways.  Also, Vermont Route 108 has been closed through Smugglers Notch due to overnight snowfall.

Portions of Vermont and Northern New York remain under a flood warningSunday  and the National Weather Service cautions that minor flooding is still a danger along the Missisquoi, Lamoille and Barton Rivers in Vermont and the Ausable River in New York.
