NS On the ground in Douglasville, GA

Post by litz »

Several cars right behind the power overturned, literally in downtown Douglasville overnight ...

Looks like some insurance to be paid out to JB Hunt, UPS, and a few others ...

Luckily for Douglasville, the derailment happened on what is probably the only area of vacant lots in the area ... had it happened just a tad bit sooner, or later, it would have wiped out buildings and/or homes.

None that I've seen ...

The power got through OK ... There were reports of MOW work in the area in the week prior ...

Could be anything, though.
