Episode Narrative A powerful Nor'easter moved north along the Eastern seaboard on the 15th to the western tip of Long Island, NY on the morning of the 16th. Very strong east to southeast winds traveled across the peaks of the White Mountains in New Hampshire and the Green Mountains of Vermont during the morning and early afternoon of the 16th. The end result was damaging, channeled downslope winds of 60 to 80 mph in the Upper Connecticut River Valley of northeast Vermont and the southern Green Mountains in Rutland county. Widespread tree damage in the form of hundreds to thousands of downed (uprooted or snapped) trees, collapsed chimneys, downed power lines and subsequent structural damage to vehicles and homes occurred in Rutland county with the city of Rutland being hardest impacted. Other towns such as Mendon, Brandon, Proctor and Pittsfield were greatly affected as well. Power outages exceeded 40,000 customers in Rutland county. In the northeast kingdom of Vermont (Essex and Caledonia counties), damaging winds downed hundreds of trees and dozens of power lines as well as shingles off buildings and roof damage in Guidhall (Essex county). Other areas impacted by downed trees and power lines included Waterford, Wheelock, St. Johnsbury (Caledonia county) and Concord (Essex county).
