WESTMINSTER, Vt. (WCAX) - High winds overnight caused hundreds of power outages across the region.

Tuesday morning, most of Vermont’s outages were in Windham and Windsor counties.

The Westminster Fire and Rescue team says countless trees fell early Tuesday morning because of the winds, saying debris even hit a home.

Green Mountain Power crews say they are out working to turn the lights back on.

A viewer sent us the video above of a downed power line that sparked. They tell us it was in Bakersfield. We’re told GMP crews worked all night and into the morning to clear the scene.
