Tree knocks out power line – Hwy. 81


SC Highway 81 was closed for about an hour Wednesday evening after a large pine tree snapped off during high winds and rain. The tree toppled power lines on the way down. A power company crew was close by and was able to remove the power lines so firefighters from the Piercetown fire department could cut up the tree and remove it. Traffic was detoured until the tree was removed. (Photo by David Rogers)
