City continues tree removal ahead of another freezing night in Spokane
SPOKANE. Wash. — City crews will continue to clear Spokane’s roads on Sunday, two days after a storm swept throughout the region, toppling trees and power lines throughout the Inland Northwest.
The City of Spokane says crews will spend the day deicing arterials and plowing residential areas. Tree removal efforts will also continue. City Spokesperson Marlene Feist says these efforts take time and is asking Spokane residents to be patient.
Chilly temperatures are expected to continue, with Spokane’s lows reaching 14 degrees on Sunday. Things will start to warm up by the end of the week with above normal temps forecasted for the beginning of November.
If you find a tree blocking the road, the City asks that you call 311. If it’s impacting a power line, call Avista. You can keep tabs on power outages by visiting Avista’s outage map.
