Vt. utility will release crews when state fixed

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) -- Vermont's largest electric utility says it will release its outside line and tree trimming crews to work in states harder hit by Superstorm Sandy once they are no longer needed in the state.

Green Mountain Power brought in about 250 outside line crews ready to help restore power. Those crews have been working since the storm hit Monday to repair damage, but the storm did less damage than feared.

Still, Vermont's utilities are reporting about 10,500 customers without power and new outages are continuing. Of that number, about 9,400 are GMP customers.

GMP spokeswoman Dorothy Schnure says officials still don't know when they will be able to fully restore power, but once it becomes clear their own crews can finish the job, they will release the outside crews.
