COLCHESTER, Vt. -
The Vermont Strong spirit has been carried south to help people impacted by Hurricane Sandy.
Dozens of Vermonters left the state to help rebuild and that's just part of how Vermont is stepping up.
Members of the Vermont Guard are on standby in case they are needed in New York. While they wait for possible orders, other Vermonters have already been shipped to hard hit areas.
A crew from Green Mountain Power worked to repair damage from Hurricane Sandy in Connecticut Thursday.
"We sent 70 employees down. It's about 44 line workers and then there were mechanics and support staff," says Dotty Schnure, GMP spokeswoman.
Schnure says after restoring power to 48,000 Vermonters in 48 hours, a group of GMP workers left Vermont Thursday for areas devastated by Sandy.
"The damage down there is very bad. There is still 4.5 million people without power. It's amazing. It's incredible. So we want to help out," says Schnure.
For victims of Hurricane Sandy who want to hit the road and get away, they can find a free escape in Stowe. All they have to do is pick up the phone and call the Stoweflake Mountain Resort and Spa.
"We're all touched by the flood," says Chuck Baraw, Stoweflake CEO & President.
Baraw says they're offering a cozy spot by the fire and a room to people who live in the storm's federal declared disaster areas. The deal is up to a seven night stay, during the next three weeks, for free.
"We're obviously not going to provide permanent shelter for them but a lot of the people who are probably staying with relatives or friends, the opportunity to take a little break," says Baraw.
For more information about the free stay, call the Stoweflake at (802) 253-7355 or (800) 253-2232.
