During this time frame, one significant incident was located in the 20 block of Manchester Place - tree into apartment building with major gas leak.  The gas was isolated at the meter and shut off quickly.  14 adults and 5 children displaced and there were no injuries.

There were 3 dispatches for cars in the water with people trapped.  In each instance, all occupants were out and safe before arrival of MCFRS personnel.  A number of dispatches were for wires and/or trees down.

No other real significant incidents occurred during this time frame.
