A tree took down a power line on Marks Road in Esko during Sunday night's storm. The line was still down Monday night, but according to a resident, Minnesota Power was supposed to repair it around 8 p.m. There were only two houses affected by the partly downed line. They still had a limited amount of power to at least one house. Jamie Lund/jlund@pinejournal.com
