Without Power After Communications Tower Collapsed

Nearly 600-Dothan Utilities customers were left without power for a while Thursday afternoon.

A communications tower collapsed near the corner of Wilson and Leona Streets and knocked down some power lines.

Dothan Utility crews were quickly on the scene.

City officials say about 590-homes and businesses were affected by the outage.

Power was restored in about an hour and a half.

The cause of the tower collapse is not known at this time, but gusty winds buffeted the city throughout much of the day.
