CARLTON – Much of Carlton remains without electricity this morning after a storm Tuesday night knocked down trees and power lines.

National Grid reports that more than 3,000 customers in Orleans County remain without power this morning. That includes 1,479 just north of the village of Albion, from between Sawyer Road and Eagle Harbor. The power company reports it is assessing the condition.

Those numbers don’t include 836 customers without power in Carlton. National Grid is estimating they will have power restored at 6 p.m.

There are also 720 customers wit no electricity from Knowlesville to East Shelby and West Barre. National Grid is assessing the condition in that area.
