Breeze brings down power line in Orleans
ORLEANS - Today's stiff breeze was apparently enough to snap a large tree limb in Orleans. The limb took a primary power line down with it along Route 6A between Eldredge Parkway and Lots Hollow Road shortly after 1:30 PM. The downed wire sparked a small brush fire. Scattered power outages have been reported and lights have blinked off and on as far away as our newsroom in Provincetown. Traffic was slowed as NStar crews had to replace a damaged pole as well.
