In Middlebury, a telephone pole suffering from “internal damage” at its base snapped with a couple of Green Mountain Power linemen aloft.

“Preliminary investigation indicates that lineman Josh McLean and Jared Allen were removing three phase lines from a utility pole and had begun to send equipment to the ground level when the pole suddenly broke at its base.
