Most of the city is still without power as of Friday morning. City schools, parks and the library are closed Friday. Because of the number of homes with debris in the yards, the city is allowing overnight street parking through the weekend.

Residents cleaning trees and branches from their property can place the debris near to the curb for pickup on Monday, according to the Pasadena Sun.

Residents with non-emergency storm-related questions may call the city at (626) 300-0746.
