The rain, wind and snow storm that hit Vermont overnight last Sunday and into Monday caused damage in multiple areas of the state. The City of Rutland was the hardest hit area. Wind gusts took down trees and limbs already weighed down by heavy snow onto power lines and streets. The resulting 25,000 power outages are affecting most of the city and surrounding area. Power restoration could take several days, according to Central Vermont Public Service. The Red Cross has been notified and is ready to open shelters if a need exists. The downed trees are also causing several road closures. Motorists were encouraged to stay off roads in Rutland. This helped city and CVPS workers to clear debris and restore power more quickly.
