SHAWANO COUNTY - Residents in areas hit the worst were hard at work cleaning up again Friday. Some say the cleanup could take weeks.
This will be the norm for the next few days, as residents in Gresham try to clear away the remnants of Wednesday's storm.
"Just trying to pick up the trees," said Kyle Kupsky of Green Bay. "We have quite a bit to do here; otherwise I'd be out seeing if anyone else needed help."
The strength of the wind was clear whether it be from the trees bent over from the force of the wind, or those that were snapped like toothpicks.
Many trees were still down and untouched throughout the area Friday morning.
Kupsky says he'll have to clear at least 15 to 20 trees around his mother's property alone.
Others say they were making progress.
"We got up here yesterday, early afternoon, and he had a whole tree lying across his driveway, everything was blocked," explained David Porn of Milwaukee. "We heard chainsaws singing all day...going to take this all to the dump and try to get the yard back to normal."
A few miles east in Shawano, people were hard at work clearing away debris from their summer properties.
"How long do you think it's going to take you to clean up? Days...probably weeks," responded Mary Haeflinger of Milwaukee.
The wrath of Wednesday's storm was still overwhelming for some.
"Started to cry...thank the lord everything is safe. It's only trees," Haeflinger said.
Most backyards were still inaccessible. Despite the damage and long days of clean up ahead, residents say the community will get through.
"We're having neighborhood cookouts we started last night and it's just nice that we're all able to come together during hard times because just about everybody in the neighborhood has some sort of damage to their property, to their homes, so it's really nice we can all get together," said John Teller of Shawano.
As of 4:30 p.m. Friday, Alliant Energy officials told FOX 11 there were still 30 customers without power in Shawano County and 40 customers in Menominee County. Officials hope to have everyone back up and running by later Friday night.
