The city of Huntsville, Ala. has been working hard to clear streets and properties following a string of storms that blew through earlier this week. Thus far, city crews have removed roughly 1.4 million pounds of debris and according to an article from the city's website, they are only half way done. 

Among the areas that crews targeted first for cleanup, was Maple Hill Cemetery. Though it has been reopened, officials ask visitors to use caution and avoid areas where workers are present. The majority of debris is expected to be removed within the next week, a testament to how hard crews are working. 

“Crews have done an outstanding job in removing debris and clearing roadways and we ask for everyone’s patience because they still have a lot of work to do,” Chris McNeese, public works director said in the article. “Their dedication has been greatly appreciated as they help residents recover from the storms.”
