BOWLING GREEN, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Crews are still cleaning up after a nasty storm hit the Bowling Green area overnight Sunday, knocking down massive trees and power lines. Electric crews have been working around the clock to fix more than a dozen power lines and poles, and have made progress, but more work needs to be done.

Workers were out Tuesday morning trying to restore power to three businesses near the intersection of Wooster Street and Dunbridge Road, plus trying to get traffic lights running again.

Dunbridge Road between East Wooster Street and Poe Road has been closed for two days. Initially, the road was expected to be closed for several days, but because of the rapid pace crews have been working, these roads could be back open by Tuesday night.

"Once we get this wire heated up, we'll get it opened up," said John Stewart, assistant superintendent for the electric department. "Without them, it would be weeks before we could get this on."

Almost all 15 poles and power lines that were knocked down are back in place.

Drivers are asked to stay clear from the area until repairs are complete.
