CENTERVILLE, Utah — Centerville Mayor Clark Wilkinson signed an order declaring an emergency related to the windstorm that swept through northern Utah Tuesday, downing trees and power lines across the region. 

The Centerville Police Department tweeted the news out. Few other details were immediately available. 

Police urged residents not to try to address any damage before the windstorm event wraps up. In another tweet, they wrote, “Flying debris is very dangerous and cleanup can wait until the windstorm is over.” 

The city announced its offices are closed for the day, but phone lines remain open to residents who need assistance. Additionally, trash collection will be delayed.

Lt. Gov. Spencer Cox, who traveled through northern Utah to assess windstorm damage, also urged area residents to stay indoors.
