Tree knocks down Niskayuna power line
NISKAYUNA — A tree brought down a main power line on Balltown Road during the storm Monday evening, police said.
They closed Balltown Road at Aqueduct Road just before 7 p.m., during a driving rainstorm. National Grid was on the way to the scene, but police expected the intersection to be closed for quite awhile.
Dispatchers said the wind and rain brought down several other wires in Schenectady County, but none of those required road closures.
