Cleanup Continues Following Weekend Storm

Posted:

The storm might be over, but cleanup is still underway in Bismarck after a powerful weekend storm.

Many trees and tree branches are down around town, and today residents and city crews are out.

Jon Berg has the story.

<<Tree branches still litter Bismarck after 70 mph winds blew through town Saturday night.

"Basically our evergreen laid on the top of our house all the way from one corner to the other," Robyn Wagner said.

Robyn Wagner and her family were at their cabin this weekend when the storm hit.

"We're actually pretty lucky because nothing fell off the walls or anything inside, it's like it just laid down soft onto the house," Wagner said.

They do have some exterior damage, but compared to how big the tree was, the damage is little.

"We do have yes some of the shingles probably have to be replaced, some siding, two corners of the house was damaged a little bit," Wagner said.

The Wagner evergreen tree is just one of many that tipped over from the storm.

"With that heavy wind, we're seeing a lot of evergreens that have blown over and pulled the roots out probably from being so wet in the grass," Russ Binstock said.

City crews along with the Forestry Department are also out, cleaning up trees and branches along city boulevards.

"We just noticed mainly up in this area of Washington Street over to fourth is pretty bad, from Boulevard North, that's what we're working on right now," Binstock said.

Binstock says it will at least be another week, of working to cleanup the damage mother nature left behind.>>

The city will pick up your tree branches.

They ask you cut them into four-foot lengths and bundle them before placing them onto your boulevard.

The branches will be picked up on your regular garbage day.
