Richardson crews are working hard to restore several traffic lights that lost power after a storm with heavy rain and strong winds moved into the area Sunday.
Crews are also picking up debris in several neighborhoods and parks where trees and tree limbs had fallen.
“We’ve made many calls for service for electrical lines down, trees into houses, trees on top of cars, trees on top of power lines, power lines pulled out of houses and electrical fires,” said Chief Curtis Poovey, Richardson Fire Department.
Reports of downed tree limbs in neighborhoods primarily in the southwestern part of the community kept Richardson Firefighters, 911 dispatchers and other City crews busy into the night and early Monday morning.
The storm caused damage to traffic signals along Coit Road, Belt Line Road and West Spring Valley Road/Centennial Blvd.
Traffic Crews have restored several, but others are running on battery or generators.
