JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — Emergency planners in Wyoming’s Jackson Hole region say the total solar eclipse went well.
Teton County was in the path of total blackout during the Aug. 21 eclipse.
The Jackson Hole News & Guide reports (http://bit.ly/2fLI1Mm ) that public safety officials planned for more than two years leading up to the eclipse, focusing on everything from traffic and crowd control and disaster preparedness to cellphone and internet logistics.
Emergency planners prepared for the worst, but the big crowds were behaved and clean.
