Heavy snow causes trees to break, power outages in Craig

Snow hit Craig hard Thursday night, tearing into trees that pulled down power lines and caused power outages on the west side of town. Yampa Valley Electric Association reported that since 8 p.m. Thursday, there had been about 1,000 customers who experienced power outages in the region, said Melissa Watson, manager of consumer accounts for YVEA, in a press release. Families and groups of homes scattered from Yampa to Baggs, Wyo., lost power because of heavy snowfall that caused branches and trees to fall on power lines.
