Lightning Strike Puts Tyler Streets In Traffic Mess

  A lightning strike during Friday's storm blew a TXU breaker shutting off street lights across much of East Tyler.
  Officials said the power is out in the area of Front Street and along North Beckham Avenue.
Traffic all over Tyler has been slow for hours. Police asked residents Friday evening to stay away from the area unless necessary.
  TXU Electric Delivery officials told us they had a crew working to quickly try and correct the problem.
