Several inches of heavy wet snow April 27-28 brought down thousands of trees throughout Vermont. The trees have created more than 20,000 power outages statewide, and created driving hazards in some areas.
Trees, branches, and power lines have been reported downed in roadways throughout the state; those on the roads today should exercise caution due to difficult road conditions and the possibility of debris or trees in the road. Most power outages were reported in Addison, Chittenden and Franklin counties.
The weight of the snow made snow removal hazardous.
