Tree falling onto power line

MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK)- Local residents were stuck in their homes due to a live wire in their driveway.

On Northwood Street, a tree fell about thirty feet onto a power line sparking visible flames. The tree was pushed by high winds traveling up to 70 miles per hour pulling down a live powerline in front of a home. The live wire blocked homeowners from leaving or entering their home.
