Last night’s storm resulted in power outages and downed trees throughout the city. For questions or to report damage only, call Code Compliance at 817-728-3620 or email lynn.brown@mansfieldtexas.gov. Power outages are reported to your electric provider.

Mansfield Fire Department reports numerous downed trees, fences and some power lines but there appears to be no major structure damage. Mansfield Emergency Management indicates straight line winds up to 85 mph were reported. Crews are still assessing the situation today. Here’s what we know right now:

  • Oncor estimates the power outages in Mansfield are in pockets all across the city so estimates on the exact number of customers affected are unavailable. Crews are already out working on restoring power to customers all across North Texas. No timetable has been determined at this point.
  • If you are without power, contact your electric provider to report your outage. You can view the Oncor Outage Map at http://stormcenter.oncor.com.
  • Traffic signals are out at several major intersections across the city. Avoid the areas around FM 157 and U.S. 287 and intersections along Walnut Creek Drive. Crews are out working to restore signalization at those intersections. Mansfield Police encourage drivers to be careful when approaching these intersections and be patient as there are traffic delays in these areas.
  • Crews are also working to remove downed trees and street signs from the roadways. Please avoid any downed power lines.
  • To report street lights that are down or not working, go to www.oncorstreetlight.com.
  • The Mulch Madness site at 24 N. Mitchell Road will be open for residents to drop off tree limbs until 8:30 p.m. tonight. The site is muddy so crews will be on site to assist with debris drop off. The site will be open Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. as part of Beautification Day, and again on Sunday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Debris drop off only; no mulch will be given out.
  • For those homeowners placing debris at the curb, Republic Services will provide special trucks to pick up limbs. They must be cut into 3-foot sections and tied together. Call 817-317-2000 to report your address for a bulk pick up. It could take crews several days to complete debris clean up so please be patient.

Here is a list of tree services working in the area. This may not be a complete list of companies. The city is not recommending any particular company and cannot provide information on the bonding or insurance from each service.

All About Trees – 817-713-1556

Allied Tree Services – 817-896-8733

KB Tree Services – 817-821-5203

Pro Lawn – 817-453-1558

P&P Tree Service – 817-477-5564

Roger’s Tree Service – 817-230-3515

  • Charter and AT&T are experiencing outages as well. Crews are working on restoring service to the area.
  • Seniors and disabled residents needing assistance may call 817-728-3620 for help. Volunteers are already working throughout the city on clean-up efforts and can provide help for residents who need special assistance.

Thank you to residents and volunteers who are already out assisting their neighbors in the clean-up efforts. Thank you also to our city departments and crews. Many of them have been busy since the early morning hours assessing damage and clearing debris.
