Residents of the City of Manassas may not have had to deal with over the hot weekend, but they certainly had to pick up limbs, or in some cases, try to dispose of whole trees.
Nearly every house had debris along its curbside Sunday afternoon after residents spent the weekend picking up limbs and cutting up whole trees that had fallen during Friday's severe storm. (see photos)
Marty Cox of Bull Run was at his elderly mother's home in the city Sunday, cutting up an entire tree that had fallen. He was moving it to the curb to be hauled off by the city.
A large limb had fallen off another tree into the neighbor's yard and he, along with neighbor, took care of that, too.
"We didn't have to, but we did. It's the right thing to do," he said.
Due to the severe strand of thunderstorms that beat up on the region Friday, Manassas City Public Works crews will be picking up tree limbs every day this week.
The limbs cannot be more than 10-feet-long and no tree stumps will be collected, according to Utilities Manager Ana Davis.
The service is for residents of the City of Manassas, who should place tree debris curbside all week for pick up. Contractors working on tree removal will have to dispose of the debris themselves.
