Today's windy conditions have caused multiple power outages in Cuyahoga Falls, according to the leader of the city's electric department.
Michael Dougherty, Superintendent of the Cuyahoga Falls Electric Department, said trees and tree limbs have fallen on power lines in various areas of the city. At about 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, Dougherty said power outages by Marion Lake and Forest Glen have been fixed, but added, "we have a number of current outages."
Customers in an area bounded by Bailey Road, Howe Road, the city line, and Kennedy Boulevard lost power after a tree broke a pole and "took down three spans of primary wiring over by Hunters Lake Drive East," said Dougherty.
A tree problem has also knocked out power to customers on 19th Street between Grant Avenue and Highbridge Street, according to Dougherty.
"The rest of the current outages are spread over the city with isolated calls for being out of power," said Dougherty.
