August Storms

The sound of chainsaws, fresh aroma of sawdust, and pine filled the air on Beach Haven and Pine Haven road on the south west end of Long Lake outside of Park Rapids. Neighbors along the area were helping each other clear trees that fell every direction. Most snapped but some even appeared twisted according to a person who clears trees for a living. Individuals from Illinois didn't get the EAS alert as they don't have a weather radio. A new utility she'd had a tree uprooted is still leaning on the shed trying to figure out how they are going to remove this massive tree. Most damage appeared to be to deciduous trees where the wind probably got caught up in the foliage and snapped them right off onto anything that lay below including houses, cabins, boats and cars. Utilities were still put clearing trees to open roads u late this afternoon and trees still laid over power lines in some spots. With the ground being so saturated from all the rain, trees are being uprooted. Comments coming from people this summer...it's become a full-time job clearing trees after all the storms this year.
