Our business in Atwater Village only lost power for 20 minutes yesterday morning, but not everyone in the neighborhood fared as well as we did. This enormous tree on Glenhurst Avenue near Silver Lake Boulevard must have made a BIG sound coming down – unfortunately a car parked on the street as well as the car parked in the driveway are still trapped underneath. The house looks better than the cars, but likely sustained a bit of damage as well. Hope everyone is safe and the city gets to work on removing the tree soon!
For those trying to clean up the pesky palm fronds that are all over the place in Atwater Village, the LA Times blog series on what you can recycle as some tips:
- Palm tree seeds are not recyclable, and should be placed in the trash bin
- For any palm fronds that are on public sidewalks or streets like in the photo above, dial 311 and hopefully eventually the Bureau of Sanitation/Street Services will collect them
- Call your field deputy or council district representative if there’s a fallen tree blocking a road, driveway, etc.
