A fallen tree has damaged some power lines along Durham Dayton Highway Wednesday morning and knocked out power to more than 500 customers.

PG&E officials say a tree fell onto power lines just after 5 a.m. The tree took down some wire, but no power poles were broken.

Power was originally knocked out to 539 customers and restored to all but 101 customers within an hour. Officials say the remaining 101 customers without power will have service restored by 1 p.m.

Traffic control is still in effect on Durham Dayton Highway, but the road remains open.
