COLCHESTER, Vt. (AP) - Vermont's largest utility says more than 45,000 homes and businesses have lost power in an overnight storm, with poles, trees and branches knocked down throughout the state.

Green Mountain Power said more than 350 line workers, tree workers, and field teams will be working to repair the damage Monday.

Spokeswoman Kristin Carlson said more wind was expected during the day, with more outages, so she asked the public to be patient.

She said nearly every region of the state was impacted and that repairs in some areas could take days.
