Downed Tree Causes Power Outages in Midtown
Monday afternoon's heavy rains caused the diseased tree to tumble earthward.
The tree, which was rotted from the inside, fell during a particularly heavy storm Monday afteroon and struck power lines at 11th Street near Juniper Street, which is near Piedmont Park.
WSB-TV reports that 336 homes and businesses have been affected by the power outage.
Delays in the arrival of equipment have pushed back estimates of a restoration of power from Monday evening to early Tuesday morning, work crews told the news station.
