Stowe, Vt.- The rain wasn't the only thing falling down Wednesday. Branches and trees fell on roads and power lines throughout Vermont.

"We try to target the larger areas that are affected," said Green Mountain Power System Operations Supervisor Jeff Brosseau.

The storms were scattered throughout the state and so were the damages.

Power line workers described the scene as working around a wall of white water.

Now GMP is trying to work quickly to restore power throughout an entire state.

"We try to target the larger areas that are affected and then work our way down," Brosseau said.

That means calling on GMP workers from across Vermont.

"We'll that's pulling resources from within our districts and mobilizing crews where they need to,” Brosseau said. “And that's involving tree crews, and line workers and that sort of thing."

With 120 workers out in the field the goal is to have major areas restored within hours.

"We hope to have some of our larger districts restored by midnight," Brosseau said.

As for the smaller areas, Green Mountain Power hopes to restore power to all customers by eight Thursday morning.
