COLCHESTER, Vt. (AP) — Crews from Vermont's largest electric utility are busy restoring power to thousands of customers after heavy snow brought down trees on power lines in the state.

Green Mountain Power said Friday that most of the outages were in southern and southeastern Vermont.

Overnight, power was restored to more than 19,000 customers.

As of about 8 a.m. just under 8,000 customers were without power in Windham, Windsor and Orange counties. A handful of outages were reported elsewhere.

The National Weather Service forecasts that a mixture of rain and snow will continue across the mountains of Vermont Friday.
