A tree fell over and brought down power lines along Statesville Boulevard in Salisbury Saturday afternoon.

The tree, on the corner of Statesville Blvd. and E. Colonial Drive, was down and blocking one lane of Statesville Boulevard just after 2:30 pm.

A spokesperson with Duke Energy said the outage affected an estimated 4,100 customers for some time Saturday. 

Duke Energy initially estimated that power would be restored in the area by 6:15 p.m., but then said the power was expected to be restored around 11 p.m.
