Solon is dealing with some downed power lines, fallen trees and some limited access on a handful of roads in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, said Fire Chief Bill Shaw.
Bainbridge Road near Solon Road is down to one lane and traffic is slow on Aurora Road near Carrington Court because of some low-hanging power lines. All traffic lights are functioning properly.
Shaw said the city is dealing with typical damage, including trees down across the city and some power issues.
Shaw said the city initiated some of its disaster plans, but did not have to fully use them.
"I’ve been through worse, we were epecting worse, we are happy we didn't have worse," he said.
CAUTION: Shaw said that as people start going outside to check on any damage, to stay away from debris that might contain downed power lines. He said it may be difficult to see the power lines.
"Don't be pulling on things, touching things," he said. "Let us come out. We've got the equipment to deal with live wires."
