MARYVILLE, MO (2010-07-19) More than 24 hours after hurricane-force winds blow through Northwest Missouri Sunday morning the clean-up continues.
The National Weather Service confirms nearly 80 mile per hour winds were clocked in the Tarkio area around 2 o-clock yesterday morning.
Reaching Maryville the main damage appears to be to trees around the city.
A giant tree on the grounds of the Energizer Battery plant on the east side of town was felled at its base.
Across town on the west side a tree collapsing into a power pole on the Northwest campus blocked the driveway to the President's residence.
This morning crews were clearing branches and limbs across the Northwest campus, which is the Arboretum for the State of Missouri.
Also on the west side of town a radio broadcast tower was bent in half as the top collapsed in the wind storm.
Numerous limbs and branches are being collected across the city as the clean up continues.
And the city isn't picking up debris but is offering free drop-off.
The wood pile at the transfer station at the city dump on North Main is accepting tree debris now through next Monday for free.
Next week the regular fees will go back into effect for dumping at the transfer station wood pile.
