Portion of Route 19 closed after tree falls on power line in Harrison Co.


Route 19 has been closed in both directions, after a downed tree took out a power line south of Shinnston.

The Division of Highways closed the road approximately one mile north of Gore on Monday. The downed tree did not land in the roadway, but it knocked power lines near the roadway, resulting in the temporary road closure. The Division of Highways is awaiting power crews to arrive on scene.

Neighbors in the area said they have not had power all morning since the tree took out the power line.
