Thursday's high winds knocked out power to the area. APS said it does not know when it will have things back up and running. Police said they expect it to be several hours.

While police are asking people to avoid the area as much as possible, if you do have to drive through that intersection, remember to treat it as a four-way stop.

Officers were on the scene and have set up stop signs to help control traffic through the intersection.

Some businesses in the area were also affected by the power outage.
