A tree fell down on the 500 block of Arlington Street this afternoon, bringing down a power line. Residents on that block, the 400 block, and possibly others, are still without power.
It was among the trees that have fallen from the latest atmospheric River to wallop the Bay Area and Southern California.
Jodell Scott, a resident of the 500 block, says, “To be honest I’ve never seen such a hard-working crew out there for hours in the pouring rain. There were a lot of trees on the wires and it was a very dangerous undertaking. Still some clean up remaining, but looks like everybody is OK and the cars look ok too.”
The PG&E outage report as of 9pm Tuesday shows widespread outages in Glen Park. The site indicates crews have been dispatched but restoration of power is to be determined.

Elsewhere in Glen Park a tree came down across the trail from the Bosworth extension to the Glen Park Rec Center. Rec & Park has caution tape up and a two-man crew sawing it apart. Photos by Dan Goldes.
On the Bosworth Street median at the 1100 block, reported nearby resident Meryl Glass, a large tree became uprooted and is leaning precariously against the tree next to it. “The Urban Forest Ranger was here last night for damage done to a number of our neighbors” on the 1100 block below Dorothy Erskine Park.

This eucalyptus tree at the top of the park is uprooted and leaning, caught in the branches of another tree. No houses are in danger.
At least a foot of water is standing on the ramp at San Jose Avenue and Monterey Boulevard. Cars slow to a crawl to get through it.
