Neighbors Help Clean Up Storm Damage


by Your Alaska Link News Team

The bad news; after last nights storm many are still with out power.
The good news neighbors are helping one other with the clean up.
Wind damage took out many trees and power lines all across town last night.
The Alaska division of forestry advises property owners to take safety precautions when attempting clean up and if at all possible you should contact a qualified professional.
The rain didn't stop one East Anchorage resident Jeff Eichholz, He got out his power tools and rain suit to help his next door neighbor clear a path. He says he's seen storms in his day but not like this.

If this happen anywhere else in the great u.s.a this would be a disaster area. Hurricanes are classified after reaching 75 mph winds we had up to 130 mph in some areas. O but the wind didn't blow in a circular motion so it can't be that. And the government wonders why people hate em . Thanks for all the sitting in Ur offices awnsering phones, its really helping me and the countless others who are trying to find out what were gonna do.

What about the rest of us who are still out of power, with children who haven't showered in 2 days are Eatn food that dnt require cooking. And are being told sry it could be 2-3 more days. What about the people who dnt have generators who lost whole refrigerators full of food, who are barely getting by with bills, and can't afford to buy the necessities. If we were somewhere in the lower 48 FEMA n the red cross would be scouring the streets making sure children were ok. I haven't seen anyone but fellow neighbors. Who decides that businesses need power first instead of families with children. Guess if you wealthy enough or live the better neighborhoods you will be served first.
