News Short: Power outage, road closure in Veyo

VEYO – Strong winds from a summer storm Friday night resulted in Washington County Sheriff’s deputies and fire crews responding to a report of a power line and tree down in the roadway at 13 N. Main in Veyo.

The St. George Communications Center confirmed at 9:10 p.m. that Washington County Sheriff’s deputies and fire crews have shut down a small portion of SR-18 at 13 N. Main in Veyo while emergency crews work with power company officials to remove the tree and power line from the roadway.
