Tuesday night’s thunderstorm in Perry downed a big, old tree that brought down power lines in its fall about 7:30 p.m.

The tree stood near St. Patrick’s Catholic Church, and its fall blocked Lucinda Street between Third and Fourth streets.

The Perry Police Department and Perry Volunteer Fire Department responded to the scene and closed the street pending the removal of the tree and arrival of a MidAmerican Energy Co. utility crew to repair the power lines.
