Ten days after a summer storm socked the Twin Cities, cleanup crews are making the rounds.
Communities across the Twin Cities are cleaning up trees and branches knocked down by three waves of heavy storms since early Friday. Minneapolis has announced plans for debris collection beginning July 1 to help people get rid of the downed wood in their yards. St. Paul plans a similar curbside pickup within the next three weeks.
Tuesday had numerous Minnesotans cutting up tree branches that broke from the weight of the snow. Those damaged trees took out power lines that temporarily left 24,000 in the dark.
Friday is the last day that crews will be in Minneapolis neighborhoods picking up large tree debris stacked on boulevards from last month’s tornado.
