    Power Line Fire


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     lzur was driving to Westerville, Ohio, when he saw burning power lines from the road. He pulled his car over and captured a video of the sparking power lines. In his town of Worthington, Ohio, power has just been resetored at three in the afternoon. 'The power was out since five p.m. yesterday,' he says. He describes the storm that swept through the area as extremely strong. 'The winds were the most impressive,' he says. 'That is why we have a lot of damage, like downed power lines and trees. It looked like a hurricane you would see on television. The rain was falling horizontally, and the patio furniture was moving. We have pretty severe weather with thunderstorms and such, but I have never seen winds like that, and I haven't seen this kind of damage,' he says.
