Tree limbs caused scattered power outages
Falling tree limbs were the cause of scatted power outages around Baldwin Saturday, according to Terry McKinney, utility director.
"We had them start falling in the morning and it was like a domino effect," said McKinney. "We had a little bit of wind and I think that made the difference."
The majority of the outages were in the heart of Baldwin, but there was also one along U.S. Highway 56 that knocked power out for several businesses, as well as residents in the area.
Some outages lasted up to four hours, but most were for less than that. So far, Monday's misting rain has not turned to ice and there haven't been in problems associated with it.
