COLCHESTER, Vt. (AP) - Vermont’s largest electric utility says it’s getting ready in case Hurricane Joaquin reaches the state.

Green Mountain Power spokeswoman Dorothy Schnure says the utility has already started lining up contract crews and have requested other utility crews in the event the storm reaches New England.

The track of the storm is unclear, but it could reach Vermont early next week

The utility is reminding people to never go near downed power lines or cross running water in a vehicle.

Officials along the East Coast are already preparing for the storm.
