Tree Falls on Power Line in Martinez

November 28, 2012 · 11 comments

A tree fell on to a power line in Martinez, forcing the closure of Brown Street, just west of Pacheco Boulevard on Wednesday afternoon.

Police are on scene, waiting for PG&E to arrive.

There are no reports of any outages due to the fallen tree.

Thanks to J. Griffin for the photo shown above!

That was fast, I heard a chipper running and didn’t think anyone would be cutting down trees today. They sure responded quick with the equipment to clear the street.

As I said in 1966, If You have seen one tree, You’ve seen them all.

No outages due to the fallen tree, no doubt. They would have likely been due to the fallen power pole.

Wouldn’t be surprised if it was those reckless hydrants climbing the trees to avoid rambunctious drivers.

Mr. Reagan, I know this is a bit off topic, but I have always wondered, and now that you’re dead, perhaps you can divulge the secret of your hair color. Was it really Grecian Formula?

A Emergency vehicle parked under power lines, REAL SMART.
