Today is not "Take a walk or ride day." Today is card games, board games, read a book and cook day. Large trees and power lines are down on most every street … many on homes.
PD is currently going house to house to check on anyone in a home with a tree on it / in it. Fire is working with Public Works to clear main thoroughfares. This is slow, tedious and dangerous work. Due to downed power lines, Public Works is currently battling its way to S. Tyler Street (LA Hwy 21). State highways will be the priority, particularly towards the hospital. There is no way to give a reasonable time line for when streets will be cleared or electricity restored.
EVACUEES: You should stay where you are at least until tomorrow. There are zero reports of looting, but numerous reports of neighbors helping neighbors.
BOIL WATER ADVISORY: For drinking and cooking, please boil. This is a precaution only. There are no reports of any contamination.
INJURIES / FATALITY: A couple of minor ones that were able to stay home during storm … hope to clear safe path to hospital today. No reports of storm related deaths.
Push / Debris Removal Contract has been activated. This means outside contractors will be working to remove trees from streets.
Communication: AT&T is out, Verizon still functioning.
