Hundreds without Power

If you live in east Jackson and came home to blinking clocks or were at home Friday afternoon and did not have power, there was a major reason. A tree fell just after 12:30 in the 1400 block of North Royal, taking a utility pole and lines with it. It also brought traffic to a standstill. JEA said more than 1,000 customers were affected, about half of them had their power restored in about an hour. Most everyone else was back online by 2:30.
