    MONTPELIER — Vermont’s largest electric utility says crews are restoring power to about 7,300 customers who lost power after a series of wind storms hit the state.

    As of 4 p.m. Friday about 1,100 Green Mountain Power customers remained without power.

    GMP spokeswoman Dorothy Schnure says they’ve brought in more than 160 outside electrical workers and tree trimmers to assist GMP crews.

    Customers in the Mad River Valley, Royalton and Rutland areas were most affected by the winds.

    The utility said that if no new outages occur, restoration would be complete by late Friday night or early Saturday morning.
