Extreme ice and tree damage knocks out power to 24,000 CVPS customers

first_imgExtreme ice and tree damage knocks out power to 24,000 CVPS customersRUTLAND -A storm that has caused hundreds of thousands of people to lose power across the Northeast has knocked out power to 24,000 CVPS customers Friday morning. The effort will take days, CVPS said, as the storm is comparable to the ice storm of January 2007, and the infamous ice storm of ’98.CVPS line crews are working with outside contract crews to assess the damage and start making repairs this morning, however, road conditions and continuing sleet and ice accumulation are slowing the restoration effort. Hundreds of downed trees, tree limbs and downed lines have been reported across central and southern Vermont. Windsor and Windham counties were hit the hardest, with significant outages in Orange, Rutland and Bennington counties as well.”We are seeing an inch or more of ice in some of the southern areas. We have a half dozen transmission problems, and about 350 separate problems reported at this time,” said CVPS spokeswoman Christine Rivers. “Our crews are in assessment mode right now, and are working to repair the large transmission problems. At this point, it appears the restoration effort will carry into early next week. Our crews will be working around the clock to restore power as quickly as they safely can.”CVPS offered the following tips for safely coping with the outages:* Treat any downed line as if it is live. Report the line to your local utility and fire department, stay at least 30 feet away from the line, and keep children and pets away as well.* If using a generator, read and follow the owner’s manual before starting the generator. Never operate a generator inside any structure or near a structure. Use a transfer switch to ensure electricity is not accidentally fed onto a line where line crews must work.* Keep freezers and refrigerators closed as much as possible to prevent food spoilage.* Turn off all electrical appliances except one light so you’ll know when service returns. Then, turn equipment back on slowly.last_img read more

Jan Vertonghen: Tottenham won’t be looking for excuses against Chelsea

first_img Press Association Spurs face the Barclays Premier League champions in the lunchtime kick-off at White Hart Lane, just over 48 hours after returning from a gruelling 5,000-mile round trip to Azerbaijan. But defender Vertonghen, who played 90 minutes against West Ham last Sunday and in their Europa League win over Qarabag on Thursday night, insists there will be no excuses. “It seems very tough but when you go on the pitch on Sunday at 12pm you have to do it,” he said. “It’s a good game for us to be motivated. We will be on top again like we always are and everyone will be fit again. “If you see a team in a run of good form like us, you can keep going until the last minute. Last season we scored a lot of goals in the last minute so that shows just how fit we are. We have a big squad and everyone is ready to go again and again. “We don’t have to look for excuses. We’ll be ready for Chelsea.” Victory would leave Spurs 13 points ahead of the stuttering Blues and reinforce the growing belief that the north London side, unbeaten since the opening day of the campaign, could be genuine title contenders themselves. “They are a good team, but we have shown great form this season, especially at home,” Vertonghen added. “It will be another big game, but it’s like that every week in the Premier League. We will have to be on top of Chelsea to beat them. “Thirteen points ahead would be a lot, but they have one of the best squads in the Premier League – maybe even the best squad – so they can turn things around and we expect a very good Chelsea side on Sunday. “We set our goal as fourth place, so just because we have won a couple of games in the last week we can’t say we have to go for the title. We will just try to finish as high as possible and anything extra will be a great achievement. “We have some very young players who are very ambitious. For them it’s important to achieve something – last year we made the final of the League Cup which was a good thing but this group wants more and this year I think we are ready to do it.” center_img Jan Vertonghen believes Tottenham’s motivation to beat Chelsea on Sunday will ensure they shrug off any fatigue.last_img read more
