Tree knocks down power line near Scio plant
SCIO – A storm blew through the area Tuesday uprooting a large tree next to the American Legion in Scio where it knocked down a power line, which was just down the road from the UEO Buckeye plant. Patrons at the Legion were told to stay inside until power could be turned off, which a truck from AEP did just that around 5:15 p.m. There were no injuries and several employees of UEO stated that one of their truck operators was inside a nearby truck at the time and was told to remain there for his safety until power was shut off. A female patron said the wind began to blow hard then hail began falling when she disappeared inside the Legion but did not see the tree topple over.
