UPDATE:
Power has been restored in Essex as of 8:30 p.m. July, 5th

ESSEX, Vt.- Green Mountain Power is restoring power to several customers as of Saturday evening.

Many of those outages are from Thursday night's thunderstorms which caused severe damage in Southern Vermont.

A few hundred people are still without power from that storm.

A GMP spokesperson said there are new outages on top of that in Essex.

That's due to wind knocking down a tree onto a power line.

GMP said power should be restored soon.
