Wind knocks down some trees, lines

Morgan City police and firefighters and utility crews were called out late Tuesday morning when strong wind blew down a utility pole at Railroad and Grizzaffi streets in Morgan City. The downed lines were a small taste of what was expected, but the region escaped with only minor storm damage.
