29 households in Parkwood were still without power at noon Friday from a tree fall in the wind Thanksgiving night. A new, single outage was reported Friday morning in Meridian Park from a different tree.
In Parkwood, one big tree dropped over N 155th, damaging numerous poles and wires.
Crews started the clean up at 8:30am Friday and it might take until mid day Saturday. There was a lot of damage.
N 155th was closed from 1st Ave NE to Meridian Ave N.
Vehicles were rerouted off N 155th onto 1st Ave NE. The Anglican Church is to the right.
That's a utility pole tangled in the wires on N 155th
A utility pole and street light are tangled in the wires and the battered transformer is on the ground on N 155th.
City Light crews are installing a grounding wire in preparation for repair work.
Power company vehicles. Note the electrical wire on the ground in front.
