CINCINNATI - Losing power during an intense heat wave is bad enough, but some Hyde Park residents who live on Broadview Circle had to deal with even more after Friday's storms.
"We have elderly people, one the power lines is literally in her front yard, we have disabled people who are trying to walk up and down the hill to get groceries and supplies, and that's a problem," said Hyde Park resident Susan Kovach.
The problem is that a large tree took down two power poles leaving the street blocked for anyone who was home when the storm hit.
"The tree fell down, and all the poles fell down, and now we're just waiting," said Krissy Little.
Little is one of the man residents who are unable to drive out of the neighborhood because of the debris.
92-year-old Gloria Rolfes is also stuck in her home.
"You cant eat peanut butter sandwiches every night," said Rolfes, who has lived on Broadview Circle for 42 years.
Duke energy crews were able to restore power to much of the neighborhood by Saturday at 10:00 p.m.
