LEHIGH ACRES, Fla. -- Residents along Colin Avenue North are concerned about power lines that are laying across their driveway right in front of their house.

The home is just off 9th Street West.

They tell Fox 4 that the power line has been there since Sunday when the storm came through, and that they have contacted LCEC several times but have not gotten a response yet.

Residents had vehicles inside their garage and had to physically lift the lines up to get the vehicles out.

They say a portion of the line is hanging so low that garbage trucks couldn't pass under it.

They know that LCEC has a lot to do right now, but feel this dangerous situation should be a priority.
