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.
