City work crews dealing with storm damage

Work crews with the forestry division of the Columbus Consolidated Government have spent today dealing with a variety of fallen trees across the city due to heavy rains.

John F. Iniego Sr. and co-worker Ralph Bailey were preparing Saturday afternoon to deal with a large tree that fell across Weracoba Creek earlier in the day.

Iniegio said he and Bailey were one of three two-man crews dealing with trees felled by the weather on Saturday.

They began Saturday morning and the call to Weracoba was the fourth of the day.

Nearby, an employee of the Columbus Water Works was keeping a close eye on a pump that was transferring water from one sewer line, to another larger one across the creek, to prevent any serious overflows.
