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
