High winds cause outages, other problems

Van Wert independent

High winds caused outages on the south side of Van Wert and in rural areas on Wednesday, while phone systems at Van Wert Health and its Health Center on Fox Road were also out for several hours before power was restored.

The Van Wert Health Center (Medical Arts Building) closed for a portion of Wednesday because of the outage, although the Van Wert Health North clinic phones were operating and the clinic remained open.

In addition, the Christmas lighting ceremony planned for 6 p.m. Wednesday in Fountain Park was canceled by the groups who organized the project. No word on whether that event will be rescheduled.
