Semi Truck Disrupts Power in Bokeelia

On 11-26-18, at approx. 2 pm, and at end of Barrancus Ave. off Stringfellow Rd. in Bokeelia, a semi-tractor-trailer caused a power line to break and fall while attempting to turn into the Mango Factory driveway disrupting power to residents nearby. Lee County Co-op restored power within an hour. Pine-Island/Matlacha Fire Dept. and the Lee County Sheriffs Dept. were on site to keep the public away from the temporarily live wire.
