Dallas Office of Emergency Management Assist Residents Affected by Storm

The Office of Emergency Management continues to staff and monitor the respite center at the Latino Cultural Center at 2600 Live Oak St.

This center was opened to provide assistance for residents affected by the crane collapse at the Elan City Lights complex.

In the coming days, Dallas Fire-Rescue will work with OSHA to determine the best course of action to remove the crane from the building.

Residents impacted by power outages can utilize open City libraries and recreation centers to seek temporary relief from the heat or to power their devices. Currently, Lakewood, Oaklawn, Preston-Royal, Skillman-Southwestern, Skyline and White Rock Hills Branch Libraries are without power.

Traffic Signals

41% of traffic signals across the City have been affected

496 signals have no communication, were damaged, or otherwise inoperable and are the highest priority for repair

168 signals are flashing red; these signals will need to be reset, but are still active

Motorists are asked to treat flashing signals as all-way stops

Call 311 or use the OurDallas App to report traffic signal problems

 

Trash and Debris Pickup

Sanitation Services are working to pickup brush and storm debris

Storm debris must be separated from regular trash and non-storm related bulk trash

Code Compliance will not issue citations for brush and storm debris placed for pickup

Extra crews are being brought in to assist in the collection, and staging areas are being activated to reduce the delay in crews picking up debris and returning to affected areas

Residents can call 311 or use the OurDallas App to report storm debris and downed limbs in roadways

Bulk and brush will continue for June, but residents are asked to help with storm debris collection by limiting bulk set-outs in June if possible

July bulk collection will be limited to brush and storm debris

Regular bulk pickup will resume August 1

Sanitation Transfer Stations are open for residents to drop off any brush and storm debris. Find locations at dallaszerowaste.com

DO NOT approach a downed power line. If a downed line is sparking or blocking access to a property, call 911 immediately
