More wet and wild
Our wet and wild weather continued this morning with today's 7:00 a.m. storm. We got a lot of rain and strong winds. Tree damage was especially high around Columbia Park and also near Vine and Mattheson. However, the tree fall that inconvenienced the most people was near Front and Kellner Streets near the the city parking lot. It knocked down power lines that supply power to the downtown. By the time I took the picture below, the tree had been removed from the street and the power lines restored. (Notice the new cross ties on the power pole.) What appears to have been the telephone cable was still down.
