Fallen tree causes Port Henry outage

PORT HENRY — A National Grid crew arrived at shortly before 5 p.m. to restore electricity to a section of the village here.

The power company had thought the 2:30 p.m. outage to Main Street between Rice Lane and Elizabeth Street and Elizabeth and Grove streets had possibly been caused by a failed transformer. However, it was found a homeowner on Shea Lane had cut down a tree that accidentally fell on power lines.

It was not known when the electricity would be turned on again.

  • Why do wolves howl?

    Of all the myths that dog the wolf, none is more widely accepted than the idea that wolves howl at the moon. Images of wolves with their heads upturned, singing at the night sky, are as unquestioned as a goldfish's three-second memory or a dog's color-blindness (both also myths).
