LONGVIEW, Texas (KLTV) - A snapped power pole knocked out electricity in parts of downtown Longview Tuesday morning.
The reports came about 8 a.m.
According to the Longview Fire Department a power pole near the intersection of High Street and Cotton had snapped. The Central Fire Department was without power as well.
A SWEPCO crew arrived on scene and had the power back on around 9 a.m. LFD says a tree had not hit the line and it may have snapped because it was rotten.
SWEPCO worked to replace the pole this morning.
