Downed tree knocks out power in Karns area

Posted:

KARNS (WATE) - Lenoir City Utilities Board crews worked into the early morning hours Tuesday to restore power to customers in the Karns area. Severe storms Monday night caused thousands of power outages in the area.

A fallen tree on Crosslane Road near Karns High School pulled down power lines, which affected about 8,000 utility customers.

Power was restored by 6 a.m., but a portion of the road remained blocked by the downed tree.
