ADDISON COUNTY — As high winds whipped along the base of the Green Mountains on Monday Jenny Beck felt secure in her Brandon home, out of the elements that were lashing the western half of Vermont.

But a few miles north conditions were even more treacherous as gusts toppled trees, which blocked roads and threatened countless homes.

“I heard there was one 97 miles per hour on Lake Dunmore,” Beck said on Tuesday. “I think that’s the one that got my camp.”
