HELENA – That winter weather is already causing some problems around Helena.

This is the scene from just under an hour ago — where it appears heavy snow covered tree branches took out a power line on Oro Fino Gulch.

We’re working to get more details on what exactly happened.

But the blocked road caused people to have to turn around or find a different route.

According to NorthWestern Energy, there’s a power outage to just over 200 customers in the area.

They estimate power will be back online around 11:00 p.m. Tuesday.
