Power restored after dead tree falls on Wilmington Island

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

About a thousand people on Wilmington Island were left in the dark after a dead tree fell on some power lines along Johnny Mercer Boulevard Thursday night, knocking out electricity to all the homes in the surrounding area. 

Police shut down traffic on Johnny Mercer between Penn Waller Road and Quarterman Drive for several hours as crews worked to remove the tree and repair the downed power lines.

That portion of road has reopened and power has been restored to the area.
