Avoid lower Brookside, to southern footbridge. Crews working to clear area. Avoid downed power lines. Call 911 if you see down lines.

City crews are working in the area of lower Brookside to the southern footbridge to clear downed trees. There are no reports of damage to any structures.  Crews will be working throughout the day and possibly the next few days, until the storms subside.

SMFD and SM Public Works are also investigating reports of possible downed powerlines.  

Always treat power lines as if they are live or energized, and never touch or approach a downed power line.
What should I do if I see a downed or damaged electrical line?

  • Never touch or even approach a downed power line – it can cause serious injury or even death.
  • Whether overhead or on the ground, consider all power lines energized and dangerous.
  • Don’t touch anyone or anything in contact with a downed power line, including debris, trees, cars, ladders, and people.
  • Don't try to use tools such as a branch or stick to move the line.
  • Call 9-1-1 right away.
  • If you wish to report a downed wire, please only tell us about what you can see from a safe distance.
