RUTLAND, Vermont — Vermont's largest electric utility says it has restored power to more than 41,000 customers following the latest storm.

A storm with high winds moved across Vermont Tuesday night knocking down trees and power lines.

Greg Hanson of the National Weather Service says the storm caused mostly wind damage although there was heavy rainfall at times. Only two dozen customers were still without service late Wednesday.

It was the second storm to cause widespread outages this week. About 37,000 Green Mountain Power customers lost power over the Fourth of July weekend following a severe rain and wind storm.
