Spokane Valley received nearly 70 reports of downed trees blocking streets and intersections during the aftermath of Tuesday's windstorm. City crews cut and move trees off the streets where possible. Some trees are so tangled in power lines that crews can't go near them until a power company has stopped by.
Some tree owners want to keep the wood for next year's fire season. If that's the case, then crews will simply move it out of the right of way and let the tree owner deal with it.
Spokane Valley is collaborating with Spokane County trying to replace street and traffic signs as quickly as possible.
