Halloween night roared in with a howl, and left downed trees, power lines and other wind damage in its wake. Though the morning has dawned bright and sunny, last night was definitely more trick than treat.

Emergency personnel throughout the county were busy all night answering calls about downed trees and power lines.

During last night’s storms, 6,117 Middle Tennessee Electric customers lost power, according to Josh Clendenen, with Middle Tennessee Electric Membership Corporation.

Clendenen said the average outage time was four hours, with the longest being in Leiper’s Fork. Residents in Leiper’s Fork experienced an outage for nearly five hours after a tree fell on a line at Bear Creek Road and Sycamore Road.

Clendenen said power has been restored to all areas affected by last night’s storms.
