If you reside on Rule Ave, north of Ameling there is a tree and power lines across the roadway. So, if you live on Rule, you’re basically stuck at home until they get that removed from the roadway. We do not have an ETA when the roadway will open. @MonicaonFOX @KMOV @ksdknews pic.twitter.com/GjqqUKMCCW
