Don't play around down power lines

Windstorm caused down power lines

On Monday @ aprox 2:30 - a power line along Cleveland and 22ct in Gresham snapped - causing Cleveland to be closed. Pictures make it very clear why to stay away from down power lines - not only loud explosions, but in one picture you can see how the flame went from one side of the street across to the other side. We appreciate our fire fighters and electic company for keeping everyone safe and repairing the lines quickly.
