NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Croft Middle School is dismissing students early Monday after a tree fell onto a pole, leaving the school without power.
Students were dismissed at 12:35 p.m. Buses ran as normal and parents were able to pick their children up at school.
“There was this huge boom, and it almost, it didn’t really sound like a transformer. It sounded almost like a bomb,” said Frances Avers.
“It didn’t sound like an accident; it was just a real huge boom, and then the lights went out. They flickered, they came back on for a few seconds, had to reset the TV. Lights went back off again, came back on. I think it went off one more time and then stayed off,” she continued.
The Nashville Electric Service said it hopes to have the issue fixed by later Monday afternoon.
