Grand Island Cemetery still works to clean up from last week's storm

GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (KSNB) - It has been 5 days since a storm ripped through Grand Island and some places are still working to clean up. The Grand Island Cemetery was one of the places hit pretty hard last week.

They have a small crew who's been working hard the past few days, but they still expect clean up to take at least another two weeks.They say this has been some of the worst damage they've ever had on their property.

"Honestly, when we get a little bit of wind we're kind of used to a little bit of damage but I didn't expect this much damage," Cemetery Superintendent Mark Sands said. "I've been here 25 years and this is the worst I've seen since I've been here."

They have less than 10 people working on clean up each day and are expecting that number to be even lower soon. They will lose much of their part time help when school goes back in session this week.
