Vermont Governor


Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin says he and other officials are grateful the state escaped passage of Superstorm Sandy without more significant damage.

Shumlin said Tuesday the state is now willing to offer support and assistance to other states hit harder by the storm, including sending two Vermont National Guard helicopters to New Jersey. He said he also would be in contact with Gov. John Lynch in New Hampshire and Gov. Dannel Malloy of Connecticut.
