Many thanks are extended to Sparta Electric System for working steadfastly to restore power to the North Church Street area, in the city of Sparta. Around 4:30 a.m., today, power was lost because of a tree that was uprooted during the storm. According to Dillard Quick, public works director for the City of Sparta, the tree was estimated to be approximately 200 years old. The tree fell across power lines, which had to be re-strung. City crews were also tasked with cleaning up the massive amount of debris that accompanied the downed lines. Power was restored at approximately 1 p.m.  (Photos by DILLARD QUICK)
