Springfield Residents Recovering From Labor Day Wind Storm
Springfield residents say they’re still recovering from wind storm earlier this month that exceeded 110 mph and left 70 residents without a home.
Springfield city councilman Steve Green says that those residents who needed shelter after the Sept. 5 storm now have a place to stay.
Springfield residents with damaged or destroyed homes can check in to various programs, including some at the state level.
On Sunday, residents will host a meal to thank hundreds of volunteers who helped recovery efforts after the storm. Green says residents are grateful no one died or suffered major injuries during the storm.
A large number of trees were lost or damaged in the storm. City documents show a Chancellor company is scheduled to arrive in Springfield within a month to wood chip the lost trees.
