Greenville police chief asks residents to limit travel in city this morning

Greenville Police Chief Justin Lovvorn reported via social media Thursday that several areas in Greenville have been affected by downed trees and power lines.

“Many streets are completely blocked by downed power lines or power poles. Power is likely to remain off for most of the morning in many areas,” Lovvorn said on Twitter.

Lovvorn asks all residents to limit any unnecessary travel in the city and surrounding areas until noon.

Lovvorn said the following locations were impassable and are being worked on this morning: North Conecuh St, School Highland & Oglesby St, Hicks St, Woodland Dr., and Cunningham St.

Power was knocked out in many locations throughout the city. Lovvorn said on Twitter that although power has been restored at several intersections, many other locations are still without power in Greenville. He said he hopes most will be restored by noon.
