Preventive maintenance lessens Hurricane Isaisa’s impact on Wake Forest

FROM WSJSTAFF REPORTS

Hurricane Isaisa left no major damage in its wake in Wake Forest.

The town experienced no flooding, but was left very wet after Monday night and early Tuesday rain and wind.

“Crews picked up several large limbs during the night and this morning that were blocking portions of Chalk Road, Ligon Mill Road and a few streets in the Margot’s Pond area. We had one downed tree along North College Street. Otherwise we fared pretty well,” said Bill Crabtree, Wake Forest director of public information.

Crabtree said the damage was light due to the ongoing work of Wake Forest Power.

“Wake Forest Power had no power outages which is a testament to the great work our tree trimming crews do year-round. Downed trees and limbs are the leading cause of power outages during storms,” he said.

“Crews work to minimize storm impacts year-round through preventive maintenance, including trimming of trees around Wake Forest’s 140 miles of overhead electric distribution lines.”
