Debris Blown off Roof Blamed for Power Outage in Luzerne County

WILKES-BARRE TOWNSHIP -- Flying debris from a roof briefly knocked out power to a shopping mall and a restaurant in Luzerne County on Monday.

It happened just after 11 a.m. at the Wyoming Valley Mall near Wilkes-Barre.

Officials say pieces of a shed's roof blew off and hit a power source which knocked off power to the mall and Grotto Pizza.

PPL quickly restored power to the mall, however it took a bit longer to get the power back on to Grotto Pizza.
