WASHINGTON - Washington residents in the affected areas were kept out Thursday due to weather. Barring any other weather issues, access will resume Friday.
"Our most gracious and heavenly father, we thank you for the community."
Thursday, Mayor Gary Manier opened a community meeting with prayer at Washington Community High School.
“I can tell you day four, Washington forward we're moving ahead. We're going to beat this thing and we're going to rebuild,” he said.  
Most importantly, people came for answers.
"I think some people are still worried about their debris pickup," said tornado victim Kris Lancaster.  
Lancaster - lost his home and shot a video that’s gone viral this week.  
He - like many others - listened carefully as city manager Tim Gleason released the latest recovery instructions.
"If somebody's living in a habitable house inside the affected area, those folks are able to come and go as they please," said Gleason.  
The city curfew will be lifted starting Friday, but not for "impacted areas." Residents can re-enter until 5 p.m. Friday through Sunday.
"Some people are still frustrated like me. I’m starting to get over it a little bit, but those people are frustrated and still ain't thinking out of their right page, not sure what to do and still people out that don't have anybody to help them,” said Lancaster.  
Access will be closed Monday and possibly Tuesday. Public Works will conduct its first "debris removal"
Gleason says debris pickup will not take place on private property. As far as entry for anyone other than residents: Volunteers can help starting Saturday. Friends and family can help starting Friday, but must enter with residents.
