Residents are reminded to phone 311 to report any downed trees. Please provide a specific address including building number and street name, if available, so crews can quickly identify the location. DDOT's Urban Forestry crews are cutting and moving fallen trees to keep roadways open. Additional clean up and removal of debris will commence after the storm ends.
