ADDISON COUNTY — A summer storm Tuesday night resulted in more than 1,200 Addison County power customers being without electricity as of Wednesday morning.
Green Mountain Power said its crews are working to repair more than 20,000 outages statewide. Damage was most severe in Washington and Addison counties.
Tuesday night’s storm was the second major weather event GMP has responded to this week. The first was a storm over Fourth of July weekend, after which GMP crews restored power to 37,000 clients statewide.
In Middlebury, high winds caused damage to tents and equipment on the Middlebury Recreation Field that prompted the Festival on-the-Green officials to cancel the Wednesday noontime performance by No Strings Marionettes. Festival organizer Pat Boera said this may be the first time in 36 years that the festival has had to cancel an event.
