Some Langley drivers had to make a detour the morning of Thursday, Nov. 17 after a tree came down on power lines around the 5800 block of 216th Street.

Power was knocked out to about 115 customers in the surrounding area, and 216th was blocked to traffic from 56th Avenue and 64th.

BC Hydro staff were on scene, and workers were cutting up the fallen tree for removal.
