Tree knocks out power pole, lines

LAKEPORT – A tree took down a power pole and power lines in an area of Lakeport on Thursday.


The lines and power pole were in the area of Third and Crawford, officials reported.


Brandi Ehlers, a Pacific Gas and Electric spokesperson, said the initial outage was reported at 5:31 p.m. and involved secondary power lines.


She said the outage affected eight customers in downtown Lakeport from 18th to Starkeys Lane and from Clearlake Avenue to Highway 29.


PG&E workers were transporting a new pole through town on Thursday evening. Ehlers said they were replacing the pole and restringing the lines.


She said power should be restored to all customers by 5 a.m. Friday.
