Stretching the line

High winds pushed down this tree along Ron McHenry Road at the Salem and Ashland township border the afternoon of March 20. The tree stretched the Central Electric power line but didn't break it. Central Electric crews were busy with power outages across their service area with nearly 3,000 customers without electricity at one point. The crews had power nearly fully restored before the sun set. The sudden storm also dumped a lot of water on area roads, causing minor flooding.
