WINDSTORM AFTERMATH: Damage, debris in Seattle Parks, and how to report it

ORIGINAL 10:38 AM REPORT: We’ll be checking on various aspects of the windstorm aftermath throughout today. First: While walking through upper Lincoln Park this morning, we saw numerous downed branches and tree limbs, large and small. With so much parkland in West Seattle, many others might notice cleanup and/or repair needs, so we asked Seattle Parks spokesperson Rachel Schulkin the best way to report what you see, today and beyond. She advises calling the Parks maintenance-request line – 206-684-7250.

ADDED 12:47 PM: A damage report from Hiawatha Playfield – a bench taken out by a madrone tree/branch:

Thanks to Erika, who sent that photo, and Max, for both e-mailing about this.

ADDED 2:50 PM: From Seattle Parks via Twitter: “Camp Long’s Ridge Trail is currently closed. Crews are removing a downed tree in the area. We expect the trail to be closed through tomorrow. Call Camp Long for more info: 206-684-7434.”
