Storm Cleanup

By  | 

It’s been more than 100 years since the state of Florida has suffered through this many hurricanes in one season.

Everyone from emergency responders to the common citizens are just plain exhausted. Even though the Tallahassee area has escaped the brunt of four hurricanes ripping through other parts of the state, Tallahassee has seen its share of the fallout.

Jennie Kohen, Leon County spokesperson, says, "We've got about 40 trees down in the county and public works crews are working around the clock to fix the problems."

Now a-days all it takes is the formation of a system to set many on edge.

CAPT Kelly Burke with the Tallahassee Police Department says, "I think everyone is tired of hearing about it, gearing up and all the anxiety that goes with it."

LT Jimmy Williams with the Leon County Sheriff's Office says, "We're kind of exhausted and we have the anxiety of the storms. It’s been over 100 years since we've been hit like this. We are exhausted. Every time we hear of another storm brewing in the Atlantic we think, here we go again."

It’s not just emergency responders who are weary and tired.

Roosevelt Glevis says, "It’s amazing to already have four hurricanes and the season’s not even over yet. I hope we don't get anymore, that no more lives are lost."

The city and county are asking residents to try to stay off the roads as work crews are still out fixing problems related to electricity and cleaning up debris.
