Wilmington Police responded to several calls reporting power lines down Sunday afternoon due to high winds in the area.

Officers responded to Cabot Street for a tree down on wires that brought the utility pole and a street light down with it, according to the Wilmington Police twitter account.

Cabot Street was blocked while the Department of Public Works and Reading Municipal Light Department worked to clear the scene.

Earlier in the afternoon, an officer responded to Wisser Street to find a large branch blocking the roadway. 

Never approach a downed power line, call Wilmington Police at 978-658-5071 to report any downed wires. 

Let us know in the comment section if you see power lines down in your neighborhood.
