Storm clean up in Shoreline

Monday, August 31, 2015

The City of Shoreline received approximately 50 calls on Saturday related to the windstorm that hit the area. About a dozen more came in on Sunday and Monday related to tree issues. Seven City staff worked for about 12 hours on Saturday clearing roadways where they could and closing them if downed electrical wires were involved. City crews will not remove trees/vegetation if power lines are down in the area.

Monday, crews from Public Works and Parks began clearing debris from City streets and parks. This work will continue through the week and possibly into next week. Crews will work on the major issues first. They will then move to clearing smaller debris from arterials and eventually move into neighborhoods.
