Cleanup continues from Thursday's storms

Crews work to remove downed trees

ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla. - Neighbors in several Central Florida counties are cleaning up from Thursday's storms, which knocked trees onto cars, garages and homes.

Public works officials in Altamonte Springs dispatched crews to clear downed trees. Those crews worked into the afternoon in several neighborhoods.

In one subdivision off Montgomery Road a private company removed a tree from the middle of a home's garage. Neighbors say no one was hurt when the tree fell around 4 p.m. Thursday at a home on Baybreeze Lane.

The homeowner told Local 6 "it is what it is." Neighbors say the family should be able to move back in Friday night. They say insurance will pay for most of the damage.

Neighbor Justin Bowden says the tree falling worries him with hurricane season around the corner.

"My family actually has an oak tree in their yard, so it's scary when it comes to hurricane season," he said.

Workers also cleared up a mess on North Glenn Drive in Altamonte, where another tree fell, blocking a driveway and narrowly missing a home there.

Landscapers worked together with the City of Altamonte to chop up and remove the tree.

No injuries were reported as a result of any of the downed trees. Landscapers plan to work into Saturday to clear up the downed tree on North Glenn Drive.
