BUSTI-High winds knocked a tree down onto the roadway of Southwestern Dr. between Orr St. and the Hamlet of Busti around 12:30 PM Wednesday afternoon.

Reporter Justin Gould said the tree is currently blocking the roadway along with power lines that were live for a time. National Grid is reportedly on scene to restore the lines.
