Police: Harrisburg curfew lifted


The curfew that had in place since an EF-4 tornado ripped through Harrisburg has been lifted.

Harrisburg Police Chief Bob Smith said the curfew was lifted and you no longer need a permit to enter the affected area.

Chief Smith says his department will continue extra patrols, though.

The curfew was in effect from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. to limit looting and for the safety of the general public.

Later at on Heartland News at Noon, we'll talk more about FEMA's decision to not provide help to people affected by the tornado in Harrisburg.
