Vermont line-workers head to Quebec

Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. -

Thirty-five Vermont line-workers are in Quebec to help turn the power back on.

Green Mountain Power has sent the crews north of the border to help restore power knocked out by the recent wind storm.

Utility spokespeople say Hydro Quebec requested the help.

The first convoy of bucket trucks and diggers left Vermont this afternoon.

Saturday more than 70-thousand were without power.

The same wind storm caused thousands of outages in Vermont on Friday but service has since been restored.
