Several People Can't Go Home After High Winds Knock Down Power Lines
HEBRON (James Jackson) -- Several people in one Central Ohio community cannot get to their homes, after high winds knocked down power lines, blocking a roadway. It happened on State Route 79, in Hebron.
State troopers say bad weather snapped power poles there, around 7 Sunday night. Traffic is being detoured around the area.
Greenbriar trailer park is near where the power lines went down. A lot of people pulled over on the side of the roadway because they couldn't get home. Rodney Rine has been waiting for hours to get there. "I've been about half sleep. Just waiting. Hoping somebody comes along and cuts the wires out of the way so I can get back to my house," Rine said.
AEP was on the scene checking things out and trying to fix the power lines. At last check AEP says around 3,000 in Licking County are without power.
