SOUTH ROYALTON — Power outages hit hundreds of customers across the White River Valley on Tuesday afternoon, but power appeared to be restored around 3 p.m.

Winds took down a large tree, breaking two poles and tearing down lines in Green Mountain Power's Royalton district, according to a Tuesday afternoon tweet from the power company. 

Those affected included more than 1,200 customers in Royalton and 500 in Randolph as of 1:50 p.m. Tuesday, according to GMP’s website. 

“Multiple crews are working to make repairs safely!” GMP said.

Vermont Law School closed for the day.
