Power outage in Echo Lake neighborhoood Wednesday evening

Thursday, November 19, 2009

During the high winds early Wednesday evening, a big tree came down across Meridian Avenue N, in the Echo Lake neighborhood, reportedly taking a power pole and two blocks of wire with it and landing on the hood of a car on Meridian.  The driver was shaken, but unhurt.  Power to the signal at Meridian and 205th went out, putting home-bound commuters into a major traffic snarl.  Power to homes along the rest of the line was out until late the next morning.
