MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Vermont’s largest electric utility is reporting more than 19,000 customers affected by power outages from heavy wet snow.

By early Wednesday, Green Mountain Power was reporting that Londonderry had 2,770 customers without power, Braintree had 1,950 and Randolph had 1,740 in the dark.

The Vermont State Police say multiple tractor trailers became stuck on Route 9 in Searsburg, where snow made driving conditions difficult and a tractor trailer became caught on low hanging electrical wires. Several troopers were there for more than six hours assisting motorists.

The National Weather Service in Burlington is predicting snow to fall through most of Wednesday, with 6 to 12 inches expected in northern and central Vermont.
