Downed Line Blocks Marshall Co. Road And Cuts Wal-Mart Power

Posted:

MADILL, OK -- A downed power line in Marshall County causes headaches for drivers and some Wal-Mart customers.

It happened near Smiley road and Highway 70 around 11:30 on Saturday morning. Marshall County Emergency Management Director Hubert Weaver says OG&E crews were called to repair the downed line after it snapped and fell across the highway.

Workers at a nearby business say the line was smoldering. Wal-Mart managers say power was knocked out for a short time, but has now been restored, and the store is open.
