PS Power Lines Down
PALM SPRINGS, Calif. -

Emergency crews are still working to remove power lines from the roadway in North Palm Springs. 

The lines went down just before 11am on Palm Canyon Drive between Racquet Club Drive and San Rafael Road near the Shell Station.

SCE Crews were able to move the lines  to Yorba Drive and have closed it between Los Felices and North Palm Canyon.

Palm Springs Police say tree trimmers clipped the lines.  No word on if any customers are without power or when they plan to have Yorba Drive back open.
