Today at around 5 pm I heard a huge noise, followed by some screams, and shortly thereafter some sirens. A tree had fallen on a group of people in Lafayette Park. Luckily, only one person from the group was truly under the tree and apparently only suffered from minor injuries. This was quite an extraordinary scene and I'm guessing this is a late result of the strong winds we've seen in the city these past few days. It was impressive to see how rapidly the SFFD and SFPD (and SFDP now that I think about it) were on the scene. I'll be checking for some news on the injured person tomorrow but let's hope for the best.
C'est quoi le SFDP? (submitted on March 04, 2006)
PS - this SFPD combination of letters has always troubled me in chemistry because the order of electron orbitals is S,P,D,F - and I was forever trying to come up with a San Francisco-ish mnemonic device for it. Sorry if this is way too dorky to interest... (submitted on March 06, 2006)
