Nearly three dozen Penelec customers were without power for almost four hours last night after a tree fell on Delaware Avenue, damaging a house and a car.
Penelec area manager John Shimko tells us the tree fell at just before 9:30 Monday night and broke a pole, damaging a cross arm, insulators and a primary line.
City employees were among those removing the tree. Power was restored to 32 customers on Delaware and Jackson avenues at 1:15 a.m.
There’s no word on what caused the tree to fall.
