WINDS CAUSE WIDESPREAD DAMAGE ~ Alan Haskins (left), Walnut Ridge Fire Chief, discusses damage caused to power lines with other firemen and members of an Entergy crew. This power pole was damaged Tuesday afternoon during strong winds, and connecting power lines pulled a streetlight pole in front of Lawrence Hall toward Free Street, causing it to be closed for several hours. The high winds also caused downed signs and trees, power outages, road closings and property damage. The stoplight at Highway 91 and Highway 63 did not have power, and the Lawrence County Tournament was cancelled Tuesday night because of power outages at Sloan-Hendrix.
