As Monday morning's damaging winds scattered branches and debris throughout the neighborhood, Marshalltown's street crews are working diligently toward its cleanup.
"Please be patient," said City Clerk Shari Coughenour. "There's a lot throughout the city to pick up."
Community members are asked to place their branches and limbs on terraces as they will be removed within the next two to three weeks.

A massive tree is uprooted Monday morning, crashing into the historic Glick-Sower House at 201 E. State St. in Marshalltown.
"Right now, we're working to ensure streets are clear first," said Public Works Director Lynn Couch. "When we're done with that, we'll start picking up limbs on the terrace."
The Marshalltown Compost Facility, 901 Woodland St., will be open Tuesday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. offering free drop-off of yard waste.
