POWER

·         More than half of the city is currently without power.

·         Crews will begin assessing damage once it safe for them to do so, which will most likely be mid-day.

·         Once the damage is assessed, crews will isolate the problems and then work on restoration to get power restored as quickly as possible based upon emergency management priorities.

ROADWAYS

·         We have 30 roadways that are currently impassible due to trees and/or flooding.

TREES

·         We have 40 trees down reported from overnight, however, we expect that number to rise significantly once daylight arrives. 

·         Do not attempt to navigate flooded roadways or clear wires or trees that are in public rights of way.

·         City crews will prioritize these issues and address them as soon it is safe for crews to respond.
