Minneapolis went on curfew over the last weekend of May. Safety precautions for urban neighbors included keeping lights on in the front and back of the house, removing all outside decor or objects that could be used as projectiles, placing garbage cans inside garages, storing water, preparing hoses and buckets in case of fire, and gathering crucial belongings. Neighbors in my block organized 2-hr night watches throughout the evening for the street and alley. As our homes are exposed both in the front and the back, safety concerns were exacerbated.
