GUILFORD COUNTY, N.C. — Ian is no longer a hurricane. Ian has now downgraded to a tropical storm.
Multiple trees have fallen, power outages are increasing, and traffic lights are out as Ian is making it's mark across the Triad.
Greensboro police said Hilltop Road in between Fairfax Road and West Gate City Boulevard is closed to all traffic due to a large downed tree.
They do not know when the road will be back open.
Drivers are encouraged to use an alternate route of travel.
WFMY News 2 crews are out on the scene checking out the impacts Ian is making on the Triad.
Crews have been working to restore power as a tree fell onto a power line, causing hundreds of outages.
Duke energy said they have about 11,000 workers across the state who are ready for this storm.
6,500 are line workers ready to restore power the rest are tree crews.
Trees are a big issue in the Piedmont, so Duke energy has to work closely with these companies to remove the trees before they can work to restore power.
The North Carolina Department of Transportation deal with a lot of the trees that fall onto our roadways.
Crews will remain on standby to tackle anything thrown their way.
