Closed roads caused school bus delays in Vail

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A portion of a major southeast side road should be re-opening at any time now.

Saturday's storm knocked out a dozen power poles along Irvington Road near Houghton and Harrison.

Eastbound Irvington between Houghton and Harrison should be back open at any time now.

It looks like most of the poles have been replaced but crews are still putting the lines back up.

On Saturday, seven poles snapped and 5 more were damaged.

It knocked out power to close to 2,000 people. All but two families have had their power restored.

Irvington was supposed to re-open yesterday but crews found an unexpected problem, and this caused a headache for commuters and even Vail Unified School bus drivers.

Today, around 500 kids were late getting to school.

At least six homes in a mobile home park near Harrison and Irvington were also damaged when an awning tore off and across six other homes.
