Lexington road crews have been busy since storms began earlier Wednesday afternoon. One of their biggest tasks involves clearing a large tree that has fallen onto Parker's Mill Road.

They said they got the call just after 3:30 that the tree had blown onto utility lines and into the roadway.

Crews said the power lines were not active, so they set to work immediately to try to clear the road.

Although cleanup is progressing, officials said the Parker's Mill Road may not be open until around 7pm.

As always, if you see downed lines, do not go near them. Road management encourages anyone who may see debris or lines in the roadway to notify them right away.
