Icy Roads Cause Downed Power Poles in Akron

Update on Jackson St:

C91C61A4-C820-4659-9D79-1B5B85860665There are multiple power/internet poles actually snapped in two!  There are wires in the road, and it is VERY dangerous there!




I caught up with John Cummings from DPW on the scene of the road closure at Jackson and Buel.  Jackson St remains CLOSED and will remain closed for the remainder of the day.


Power and (gasp!) internet are all out in the area of Jackson, Brodies’s Way, Flint and Hake.  DPW and Spectrum are on the scene working in this horrible weather to restore power and internet as fast as they can, however this is going to be most of the day.  It’s a BIG MESS!

That’s all for now!  Stay safe, neighbors!  -JAP-
