Tree down on utility or power lines near Washington Junior High in Rock Island


The combination of icy branches and strong winds is proving too much for some trees to withstand tonight.  

This picture comes from Rock Island and is right next to Washington Junior High. 

It looks like the large branch is down on a power or utility line and crossing 20th Ave.  The street is blocked off.  

Be careful if you come across anything like this tonight as these lines can still be active and very dangerous.
