The Public Service Commission was in Clarksburg Monday evening to meet with local utility workers and members of the public.

Representatives from electric, water, and telephone companies were present to answer questions about the June derecho and October's superstorm.

Kevin Hoover of Buckhannon said tree line maintenance had a huge impact on residents in the recent storms. 

"The trees are the issue, its not the storm. It wasn't the weight of the snow. It wasn't the winds. It's simply the trees that are growing through the power lines or so close to proximity to the power lines that when they fall they fall and take out the line," Hoover said.

Hoover said someone has to take responsibility for trimming the trees and we all need to be prepared for dangerous storms.
