SF Residents Continue To Clean Up



Bookmark and Share

As the freezing rain and snow continues to fall, so do the trees, leaving a mess for residents to clean up.

Adam Smith of Sioux Falls said, "It's kind of like a war zone, there's trees everywhere."

Smith's neighborhood near 16th and Southeastern Avenue looks like many throughout the city of Sioux Falls, as ice becomes too much for trees to handle.

Smith said, "There's just trees down everywhere."

The tree in front of his home fell to the ground at around 3 o'clock Wednesday morning.
   
"It's really big, it just kind of split in half," said Smith.

And when it came down, it came crashing into the street, blocking traffic in and out of his neighborhood.

Smith "It was kind of where it is now over to that light pole over just all the way across the street."

The street is now clear, but when crews came by, they moved it right in front of his neighbor's drive way.
So, like others around the community, he decided to do what any good neighbor would.

Smith said, "I was just going to chop it up and see if I could move it out of the way."

And he isn't the only working a chain saw, as thousands of residents throughout the city continue to clean up, even as the rain, sleet and snow continues to fall.

The city of Sioux Falls says if you have a tree that has fallen in your yard, do not call emergency crews unless it is covering a road. They say they will eventually be around to every neighborhood to clean up.
