Most outages repaired in Vermont

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) -- Nearly all of the power outages have been repaired in Vermont after Superstorm Sandy brought high winds and rain to the state.

Under 20 households were still without power on Wednesday night from a height of more than 48,000 during the storm.

The state's largest utility, Green Mountain Power, is now making plans to send 70 employees, including lineworkers and support staff, to help restore power in other states devastated by the storm.

The state was hit hard by Tropical Storm last year and largely spared by this latest storm.
