Tree Topples Power Lines, Causes Outage in Redwood City

By Bay City News Service: 
A tree fell in Redwood City Thursday morning, bringing down power lines and leaving about 22 residents without power, a police lieutenant said.

 Redwood City police Lt. Sean Hart said that at about 8 a.m., residents reported a fallen tree on Iris Street near Vera Avenue, about two blocks from Red Morton Community Park.

 Hart said the tree was an old oak tree that took power lines down with it when it fell into the street. The roadway was briefly blocked, but has since been cleared.

 PG&E crews are working to repair the damaged lines and customers were expected to have power restored by about 3:30 p.m.
