STORM CLEAN-UP IN FRESNO

News
 Too much rain, too fast.
 It’s a recipe for flooding.  That’s what happened near Peach and Olive , trapping the owner of this Corvette in the middle of a road, and forcing a call to a tow truck for help.
 
For Analisa Woodward, it wasn’t a flood, but a pothole on highway 99 that got her week off to a bad start.  “I managed to miss two, but not the third.  So it popped the tire and here I am,”  she said.
 
The storms that started on Friday have had CalTrans and city crews busy,  fixing roads and cleaning up from the mess that was left behind.  According to Tami Conrado with CalTrans, “Our maintenance forces are out there keeping up with the storms.”
 
Off the roadways, there were other hassles.  The heavy rains and wind took out a telephone pole and a tree near Mildred Tabor’s home.  It was a very close call that happened in the middle of the night.  “I thought lightening had struck the house.  That’s the way it sounded, ” Mildred said.
 
Crews have already replaced the pole.  And they’re doing their best to stay on top of the trees.  According to Denny Boyles of PG&E, “Any given year we’ll do maintenance on abut 2-million trees.  This year it’s probably going to be close to double that.”
 
A break from the rain is now on the way.  And that’s a good thing.  Giving clean-up and road crews a chance to catch their breath, and get ready to the next round of stormy weather.
