HENRIC, Va. (WRIC) — A downed tree in Henrico County prevented residents from accessing their neighborhood for hours Thursday morning.
The tree fell across Merryman Road, blocking the only access to the county’s Ravenswood neighborhood.
A neighbor told 8News the incident caused a ‘major inconvenience.’
“I can’t get to work,” one area resident said.
Dominion Energy first showed up, but determined that the issue was not affecting their lines.
A Verizon crew was then called to remove wires that became tangled in the tree.
After the wires were removed, a public works crew used chainsaws to cut the tree apart and clear path for vehicles.
