311 Call center busy with storm clean-up

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- A lot of those without power right now are making calls to South Bend's 3-1-1 center looking for answers.

When severe weather tore through South Bend, Elkhart, and Granger Monday night, operators at the call center got hundreds of calls.

They told ABC57 a majority of them were storm-clean-up related.

The operators helped coordinate clean-up across several city departments.

"Nobody has a problem overlapping to get the job done," said director of 311 Cynthia Simmons. "They worked tirelessly throughout the night to make our city safe to drive so we didn't have to worry about tree limbs down."

The city will pick-up your downed branches if you leave them at the curb or you can call 3-1-1 to set up an appointment.
