Thirty-four heavy trucks and countless chain saws made a dent Saturday in the tornado cleanup here.

Crews focused initial efforts on removing downed trees and branches, which block roadways and access to many homes in the aftermath of Thursday's tornado.


"It's amazing how quick things are getting cleaned up," said resident Randy Taggart. "It's neighbors helping neighbors."
