High Winds Cause Vermont Power Outages

BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — High winds caused thousands of Vermont customers to lose power on Friday.

At noon, utilities reported more than 9,100 customers without service in mostly Chittenden, Addison, and Rutland counties, WCAX-TV reported.

A cold front was expected to move across the state through the afternoon, with heavy downpours and possible thunder in southern counties.

Over the weekend, temperatures will drop on Saturday and rain will change over to snow in higher terrain, possibly causing some slippery travel conditions Saturday night, according to the National Weather Service.
