A 16-mile section of Interstate 19 closed Friday night because of storm damage was reopened at 4 a.m. yesterday, said Department of Public Safety dispatcher Rita Madrigal. A 200-yard section of 1-19 near Pima Mine Road was restricted to one lane in each direction yesterday and could remain partially closed for several days, she said. M9 was closed from Valencia Road on Tucson's southside to Duval Mine Road in Green Valley after nearly 30 power poles snapped Friday evening. Power lines landed on the highway, setting off a five-car pileup that injured eight people. Interstate traffic was diverted during the night to South Nogales Highway, Madrigal said. Elsewhere in the Tucson area, the Tucson Fire Department responded to 350 calls Friday niiht thrw times the norm, said spokesman Randy Ogden. Many of the responses were swift-water rescues of drivers trapped in rushing washes, he said. Margaret Krieski, 43, of the 6900 block of East Mary Drive, drowned when her car was swept away as she drove across a rain-swollen wash at East Stella Road, about half a mile southwest of East Golf Links and South Kolb roads. Nearby residents Matthew Dukette and Stan Tyszkiewicz dived into the rushing water after her, but were unable to free her after her car crashed into a bridge. Another driver was swept into the wash but managed to escape before his car crashed into the bridge. Krieski was on leave from her job as a photo lab manager for Smith's Food and Drug Stores. She was an aspiring author and artist who loved to draw flowers and write romance mysteries, said her son Steve Krieski, 20. "Every single one of my friends called her mom," he said. Her family was trying yesterday to track down and thank the men who tried to save Margaret Krieski, Steve Krieski said. "I'm just glad to know somebody out there cares," he said. On the day after the storm, residents and business owners across the city patched roofs and swept debris. Those without power sweltered inside their uncooled homes. "It's miserable," said northeast-side resident Clarke Duncan, 70, whose power had been out for nearly 24 hours. Duncan, who lives in Tucson Country Club Estates, said he came home from a dinner party Friday night to find the whole neighborhood pitch dark. As of 4:30 p.m. yesterday, Duncan and his wife were still without power. The couple stocked their freezer and fridge with dry ice to salvage perishables. At first, they planned to stay home and stick out the heat until the power was restored. But as the hours dragged on, they reconsidered, and Duncan's wife wont to a friend's air-conditioned house. "I may go to a movie," he said. Elsewhere, the storm ripped a gaping hole in the roof of a warehouse and damaged some of the 10.000 videotapes belonging to the Muscular Dystrophy Association. The tapes, dating back to 1958, contained footage from the association's yearly Jerry Lewis telethons. The tapes were stored in a climate-controlled room in the warehouse near West Grant Road and Interstate 10. "These are all things that just can't be recreated," said Fred Stecker, special assistant to MDA's executive director. A 25-by-30-foot hole exposed the sky from inside the room, where crushed and wet boxes of videotapes were covered with debris. Movers loaded as many tapes as possible into vans and hauled them off to a temporary storage site. The association moved its national headquarters to Tucson in 1991. The warehouse stores supplies and brochures for MDA outlets across the country, Stecker said. The Ramada Inn University and Conference Center, 1601 N. Oracle Road, remained closed yesterday after Friday's storm flooded 60 rooms, the lobby and dining area. "It came through like a geyser. It just shot through the front door," said employee Carolyn Reeves. People from the 35 occupied rooms were moved Friday night to a nearbv motel, she said. Sixtv of the Ramada Inn's 193 rooms are in need of repairs, and the hotel will remain closed in definitely, Reeves said. Some of Tucson Water's oasteiHp and westside customers were still without water yesterday because of electrical failures at pumping stations and storm-dam-atpd wells said Mitch Basefsky, a company spokesman. The total number was unavailable, he saia. The storm dumped up to 4 inches of rain in some parts of the city, according to the National Weather Service. At Tucson In ternational Airport, the Weather Service recorded 2.07 inches of rain Friday evening. In a normal AuffiLst. Tucson receives I.iy inches of rain. rw-m m b ... r'lLJLJ W X h u,Ai.m-EL.
