A storm early Saturday afternoon, with gusty winds that caused several trees and limbs to come down, left about 1,900 people in Lycoming County without power - some for several hours. Utility crews and emergency personnel worked throughout the night to remove debris and repair downed lines.
Emergency personnel responded to multiple reports of wires down such as at 1613 Elwood Road. Downed wires caught on fire at 900 Louisa St. At 527 Cemetery Road, downed high power wires began arcing near the street.
The city and Loyalsock Township were the hardest hit, with about 600 customers experiencing outages in both locations. Another 306 customers were effected in Muncy.
"For most customers, power was restored around 8 a.m. (Sunday)," PPL spokesman Rich Beasley said.
Emergency personnel also removed trees from 1504 Northway Road, 215 Lincoln Ave. and the 1500 block of Bloomingrove Road, where the tree was blocking the roadway.
At about 2 p.m. reports came in of a tree that had fallen into a building at 1522 Randall Circle. Though the building suffered some structural damage, no one was injured, according to authorities.
