MACEDONIA, OH (WOIO) - Macedonia Commons shopping center, along with Route 8 in both directions and 271 in the area of Route 8 have been reopened after downed power lines caused a hazard to many in the area.
One road that runs through Macedonia Commons remains closed, but businesses are open with normal business hours.
19 Action News reporter Laura DeMaria said about a half mile of wire actually fell on 271 and some motorists were trapped in their vehicles because lines fell across their cars.
First Energy reports a 69,000 volt transmission line dropped on other power lines causing the outage. It's expected to be at least a few hours until service is completely restored.
