Downed power lines, power outages and broken tree limbs were evident across the county following an early Saturday morning storm.

For the second time in 17 days wind took down power lines on the Coats black top between U.S. 54 and Coats.

Southern Pioneer crews were busy Saturday morning putting poles back up just north of SW 50th Street and SW 50th Avenue. Electricity was knocked out for several hours in the area.

On May 31 a storm took down 16 power poles in the same stretch of line but further north on SW 50th Avenue.

A large cottonwood tree was blown over on NE 110th Avenue just north of NE 90th Street that is a mile north and a mile east of Preston. The tree stretched across the entire roadway and had it blocked for several hours until county crews could move it off the road later Saturday morning.

A large tree branch came down on Pine Street just south of Eighth and Pine. City crews removed the branch to the lawn to clear the street that was partially blocked.

Several trees in the Pratt Park system had some smaller damage while many small branches were down across the city and around the county.

A traffic signal broke loose at First and Stout. Although the signal continued to work, it swayed in the wind hanging on by just the wires until city crews repaired the damage Saturday morning.

Some localized flooding was evident at several locations across the county but there were no reports of damage.
