9/11/17: After The Storm Update 1
 

Good morning Chief Steve Langevin Palm Beach Shores police.

We made it through with a lot of tree damage, we used a front end loader we rented and cleared all streets, except Blossom and the Parkway. we are working to cut it and move it as quickly as we can. some structural damage, but all in all we did well. The county has lifted the curfew until 8PM tonight, so it is clear to come home. However we still do not have power and no expected time frame for repair The police departments' phone lines are down, a generator failed and without it we do not have communications except for 911 and our police radios. 

 

Initial Damage Assessment:
Conditions remain dangerous until teams are able to assess damage and begin clearing streets.  Please support us by staying off the streets to allow our safety teams to begin to clear the streets and ensure it is safe.  There may be dangerous areas with downed power lines, gas leaks, and debris that need to be cleared. While teams are working, please do not leave your homes. 
 
Do not drive or walk through standing water. Standing water poses significant threats to life as there may be downed power lines and debris that you can't see which can cause electrocution or significant harm to life.

 
 
Trash Pickup:
Trash pick-up remains SUSPENDED today, Monday, September 11.  We will provide further information when available.
