Cracked Power Pole Threatens Home on Nile

CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

A power pole on the 1000 block of Nile came dangerously close to crashing down on a home on Tuesday.

Robin Davis, the woman who lives there, said a driver hit the pole over the weekend, and this morning it began to crack because of the high winds.

"This morning the wind has been so bad," Davis said. "You could hear the pole cracking and leaning."

Fortunately, a crew from American Electric Power was nearby. They were able to brace the pole temporarily, and it has since been replaced.
