Fallen tree branches caused a power outrage for about 110 residents in the Duveneck/St. Francis neighborhood on Wednesday, Utilities Communication Manager Debra Katz said in an email.
Katz's email, sent around 8:30 p.m., estimated the work would be completed and power restored around 10 p.m.
"Once again, the situation emphasizes the importance of avoiding placing fast-growing trees near power lines," Katz wrote. "The City Utilities offers the Right Tree Right Place program to help people address this very issue with free removal of problem trees and rebates for replacing then with appropriate trees---or replanting elsewhere in the yard."
More information can be found on the city's website.
