UPDATE: Eufaula roads deemed impassable due to hazardous road conditions

EUFAULA, AL (WTVM) - The Eufaula Police Department is urging residents to stay off the roads due to hazardous road conditions.

Police say there are downed power lines and trees are causing the roads to be impassable.

The Street Department is in the process of clearing what they can, however the trees with power lines cannot be removed safely until Alabama Power Company is on the scene.

Power is out to the majority of the city and roadways are darkened, making being able to see these trees and powerlines difficult, if not impossible.

It is unknown as to when the streets will be cleared, but in the meantime police are urging residents to stay off of the roads.

This does not apply to State and Federal highways within the city limits.
