MONROE, N.C. -- On this day after a powerful storm barreled through Monroe, there are still signs of what happened.
Around 6 p.m. Thursday night, the storm blew over trees that fell into houses and pulled down power lines sending hundreds into darkness at one point in the evening.
From Lancaster Avenue to Griffith Road and parts in between, the roads are clear, with the exception of leaves and trees and other damage left behind. On Craig street, however, there is still a lot of damage that Monroe street and road crews are working to clean up.
A massive Oak tree which is at least 50 years old fell across Craig Street taking down a power lines with it.
Road crews said it could be at least two more hours before they removed the tree and then a couple of hours before the power is restored to the neighborhood.
