BLUE ASH, Ohio -- Downed trees have closed Kenwood Road early Monday morning from YMCA Drive to Sycamore Road, according to Blue Ash police. 

Trees snapped power lines before falling across the road at 12:30 a.m. Monday, according to Blue Ash police. Police say the road will be closed until at least 7 a.m. and will likely impact morning traffic.

Traffic is being detoured through YMCA Drive to Blue Ash Road back to Kenwood Road. 

The trees fell atop power lines, which cause two transformers to blow. Duke Energy crews were on scene, and about 400 residents were without power as of 7:45 a.m.
