Chebacco Road Reopen After Tree Falls on Wires

Chebacco Road in Hamilton was closed for about an hour on Monday afternoon because a tree fell on power lines.

A tree fell on power lines along Chebacco Road in Hamilton on Monday afternoon, closing the road for about an hour and cutting power to homes in the area.

A tree came down on wires at about 2:45 p.m., said Hamilton Police Lt. Scott Janes. It occurred about a half mile down Chebacco Road from Essex Street, completely blocking the road, Janes said.

The tree was cleared from the road by about 3:45 p.m., Janes said. Crews from National Grid remained there, undertaking repairs to the electric lines.

"They can pass by at this time," Janes said just before 4 p.m.

National Grid said a total of 41 homes in the area were affected by the outage and that power would be restored by 4:45 p.m.
