Storm lashes region

Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. -

A storm rolled through our region late Monday afternoon, knocking out power to hundreds of Vermonters.

In Bennington and Windham counties, tornado watches are in effect. Green Mountain Power says upwards of 8,000 customers are without power.

"Damage is spread out all over the state. We have crews and we've had more brought in -- additional contracting crews to help us and we'll be getting people back on as quickly as we can. We have some broken poles. We're assessing how great the damage is," said GMP's Dotty Schnure.
   
Vermont Emergency management reminds residents not to go near downed trees or limbs unless they are sure they're not touching power lines.
