City and County Move Ahead With Storm Recovery
April 7, 2011

The Shelby County Office of Preparedness continues to coordinate storm damage clean-up efforts throughout Shelby County. Here is today’s status report:

Power Outages 
  • Memphis Light Gas and Water currently has approximately 6,300 customers without power
  • MLGW anticipates having power restored to all customers by Friday
  • Use extreme caution near downed power lines; contact MLGW at (901) 528-4465 to report damaged lines

Tree Limb Removal 
  • Memphis Public Works crews will remove tree limbs at the curb provided they are five feet long or shorter with a diameter of 13 inches or less
  • Private contractors hired by homeowners are responsible for tree limb removal

  • The United Methodist Disaster Relief Team is available to help homeowners with tree debris. If you need help, please contact Byron Craine @ 901-292-5515

Traffic Signals
  • Traffic signals are still out at many intersections; treat these as Four-Way Stops
  • The signal lights at Austin Peay and Old Brownsville Road were severely damaged and have been set up as a Four- Way Stop until repairs can be completed

Damage estimates have been submitted to the Tennessee Office of Emergency Management for consideration of a disaster declaration due to the growing costs of removing storm debris. At this time, Memphis and Shelby County does not qualify for disaster assistance funds.
