Volunteers Continue with Cleanup in Hazelwood
By Pat Lindsey
Last Thursday, on the day after an EF2 tornado ripped through Hazelwood and Florissant with winds of 110 mph, the air in the hardest hit areas smelled like Christmas, but no one was celebrating. A massive cleanup had begun on Holiday Avenue., Lynn Haven Lane, and surrounding streets, and tree trimming crews were removing the largest pines that had caused so much of the damage. While much has been removed, the work continues this week.
The Hazelwood Police Department (HPD) is partnering with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) in giving local residents their sixth opportunity in three years to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs. A National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day is scheduled for Saturday, April 27, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. This public service is free and anonymous, with no questions asked or identification required.

Six Spent Night at Armstrong School
The American Red Cross St. Louis Area Chapter is moving the Hazelwood shelter to the civic center at 8969 Dunn Road because Armstrong Elementary School does not have power. Six people spent the night in the Red Cross shelter at Armstrong Elementary last night after tornadoes ripped through the North St. Louis community. Red Cross disaster assessment teams will begin canvassing tornado damaged neighborhoods in Hazelwood this morning, after police and fire have determined the area is safe. Down power lines and a gas leak have prevented first responders from allowing assessment teams in the affected areas. Assessments are required before the Red Cross can begin casework. Volunteers will likely start damage assessments sometime Thursday morning. Caseworkers expect to meet with clients this afternoon.
Florissant Had Damage Also
In addition to all the storm damage in Hazelwood, from what weather officials are calling a tornado, there are parts of Florissant that sustained significant damage also.« Previous Entries Next Entries »
