Nearly 30,000 utility customers in Vermont, New York and some part of New Hampshire have been without power as of 8:30 am, though as the snow continues to fall and power lines become laden with the wet, heavy snow, that number may continue to climb. Officials have reported that it could be as late as Thursday before most power is restored.
Some parts of Vermont are still under a Winter Weather Advisory, including northern Chittenden and Franklin Counties, as well as the Northeast Kingdom. Roads at higher elevations may be snow covered so driving precautions are highly recommended.
Wunderground.com states: "Winter Storm Warning for heavy snow means severe winter weather conditions are expected or occurring. Check to see if you are prepared for possible power outages, including having alternate sources for power and heat."
