SYLACAUGA, Ala. – A tree that fell through a three-phase line on Hwy. 21 South around 9:00 Thursday morning is still causing power outages for many in the community.
According to Sylacauga Utilities Board (SUB) General Manager Mitch Miller, 97 households are still without power, but electricity is not the only service people have been doing without over the last three hours. Customers are also without cable, internet and telephone services.
A power pole was snapped in half as a result of the tree falling. SUB is currently working on replacing the pole. Miller said it takes time to replace a power pole and get all services restored. He said all available resources are being used to restore power to the community as quickly as possible, but he believes services may not be back up and running until 5 p.m.
