Broken tree causes power outage in Marion
Fifteen to 20 percent of city residents lost power Sunday night when the weight of snowfall caused a tree behind 602 E. Hudson to snap in half, breaking an electrical wire.
At 9:32 p.m. Marion public works employees found one phase of primary service gone in a loop of the electrical wiring system.
Crews cut down the tree and made emergency repairs to reestablish service.
