Kokomo Chopping Through Tornado's Limb Debris

KOKOMO, Ind. (AP): The huge number of tree limbs knocked down Kokomo when two tornadoes hit the city three weeks ago are starting to disappear.
City crews have largely picked up the branches from around the city and hauled them to a factory parking lot. That's where large wood chippers have been used to grind them up for use as mulch in city parks.
Parks superintendent Randy Morris says he estimates that 22,000 cubic yards of branches have been collected since the severe storms hit Nov. 17.
Up to 10 dump truck loads a day in wood chips have been hauled from the factory to a lot near the city's parks and recreation building.
Morris says the wood chips will eventually be used along trails in city parks.
