VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Strong winds knocked down some power lines in Valdosta Monday afternoon.

Around 12:30 p.m., a tree on North Valdosta Road near Langdale Park was blown down and landed on a power pole. The power pole snapped, causing the lines to fall.

Traffic was diverted onto Country Club Drive for about 30 minutes while North Valdosta Road was shut down to allow power crews to take care of the lines.
