Columbia, SC (WLTX) - A downed tree on the property line at WLTX studios caused power outages along a stretch of Garners Ferry Road Friday afternoon.
The tree went down around 5:10 p.m. on the backside of our station's property, bringing down power lines with it. It also led to a small brush fire.
The damage caused about 980 power outages in a region right around the station down Garners Ferry Road at its peak. Traffic lights in the area were affected.
Most of the power has now been restored.
