A tree that fell into a power line Monday morning cut power to the Nippon Paper Industries USA's paper mill and several other businesses along Marine Drive.
PORT ANGELES, WA, June 14, 2011 (Local News) -
The tree, which fell at 8:15 a.m. near Marine Drive and Hill Street, closed Marine Drive to non-commercial traffic between Tumwater and Hill streets.

Traffic was detoured up Tumwater Street and west along Fifth Street to Hill Street. The detour remained in effect into the evening, city spokeswoman Teresa Pierce said.

Trucks were being detoured through the Port of Port Angeles log yard.

Access to the east entrance of the Boat Haven was available to local traffic.
