It’s been almost a month since the wind storm that did so much tree damage in Tulsa. Crews have picked up more than 44-thousand cubic yards of debris…enough to cover almost 200 football fields three feet deep. City Spokesman Bob Bledsoe says it’s still going to take a while to finish the job.

He estimates it will likely take at least another two or three weeks to complete the cleanup. There is a map on-line at cityoftulsa.org/debris that shows where crews are working and when they will get to your neighborhood.
