Construction crews working on the state Highway 197 reconstruction project apparently damaged a power pole in the area, which caused businesses to lose power. The incident was reported at 2:52 p.m.

Traffic along 197 also had to be diverted for a short time as the power lines were obstructing traffic lanes.
