A tree fell onto a residence on Bilmar Boulevard in Pleasant Valley on Friday, displacing two adults and children aged between three and eight.

Emergency repairs on the South Broadway overpass, damaged by an oversized tractor-trailer on Aug. 31, have been successfully completed. The closure, the longest in the bridge's history, allowed for essential repairs. The incident highlighted the
importance of adhering to the bridge's clearance height of 14 feet, as the involved truck exceeded this limit at 17 and a half feet.
