In Cornish, a car hit a utility pole on Route 12-A, and Hanover residents lost power in the area of Dunster Drive due to a blown fuse.

The weather also created havoc in Vermont with New Boston Rd in Norwich VT being closed for a while after a tree and wires fell on the road.

Vermont also experienced several mudslides during the storms.  Route 5 in Westminster was closed for a large mudslide across the road as well as Route 9 near Brattleboro.
