Dear Prairie Grove residents and businesses,
As you know, we had a significant weather event last night where a tornado may have touched down in the Timber Hill area. Our crews have been working through the night. Right now our priorities are: 1) to clear the main main roads of debris followed by the residential roads; and 2) inspect and address any trees/limbs that may compromise power lines.
**Do not inspect or approach any downed power lines**
Power has been restored to some parts of the Village with full service expected to return no later than Friday.
At this time, we are deploying all of our available resources to expedite clean-up and ensure the availability of emergency services. For that reason, the Village cannot pick up debris from private properties.
For life-threatening emergencies please call 911. Our staff is extremely busy and therefore we ask you to please limit phone calls to the village for urgent matters only. The Village will provide additional updates as information is received.
We thank you for your cooperation and hope for the safety and well-being of your families and property.
David F. Underwood, Village President
