Cortland road reopened after fallen power lines prompt alternate route

Local News

CORTLAND, Ohio (WKBN) – Power lines were taken down on the 3000 block of Ridge Road in Cortland by the gusts of the storm last night.

According to the fire chief, they don’t think it was lightning that took down the tree, just storm wind and saturation.

Ohio Edison arrived on scene to check out the lines, one of which were still hot.

The road is now reopened. Drivers were instructed to take an alternate route while crews cleaned up.
