Wednesday morning, a semi that had large pipes on the back end lost one of those pipes while driving eastbound on North Green Street in Henderson.

The pipe ended up breaking a power pole between 4th and 5th Street. Henderson Municipal Power and Light have a crane holding up the broken pole and closed off the lanes around the pole.

HMPL will have the right lane closed to traffic on North Green Street between 4th & 5th Streets this afternoon and tomorrow while work is being completed to change out a power pole, weather permitting. The area is designated. The crew asked that drivers stay away from the area for the safety of themselves and the safety of the crew.

UPDATE: The roads have been mostly cleared as of 10:49 PM (4/7).

Our third day in a row with very mild temperatures. Highs across the Tri-State were in the low and middle 60's. A few showers at times crossed the area. A cold front will push through the Tri-State and will cause a few strong storms, that could have strong winds and even some torrential rain. Some flash flooding is a possibility. Strong winds overnight switching from the southwest to the northwest and may gust as high as 30 mph.
