Spring storm causes power outages, few traffic accidents

A spring storm brought heavy, saturated snow Thursday night and continued Friday throughout Northern Utah and Southeast Idaho. Logan Police Lt. Brad Franke says the weather has affected the trees and caused downed power lines, but only a couple of very minor traffic accidents. He says it is nice to see people acting cautiously in what could have caught the public off guard. Franke says a handful of utility problems and the same amounts of downed tree branches have been the bulk of the problems throughout the city. The wet snow brought 1.09″ of water when measured Friday morning at the KVNU studios, an official reporting station for the National Weather Service. The amount of moisture is sure to yield more by the storm’s end. Attention by state and local officials is now turned to flooding since the mountains are expected to accumulate a few more feet of snow out of this storm alone.
