After a Halloween night filled with storms, the cleanup of fallen trees and other damaged areas has begun in central Indiana.

In the Killarney Hill neighborhood on the south side of Indianapolis, dozens upon dozens of trees fell in yards and in the roadway.

Crews hired by the homeowner’s association started cleaning up the streets at 3 a.m.

“We’ve only had one bad storm this year that we’ve had to come out this early, so this is probably one of our worst [storms] of the year,” said Keven Cowan, who works for Primary Grounds and is cleaning up the Killarney Hill area.

Cowan estimated that it takes crews about 20 to 30 minutes to fully clear each tree.

“There’s a couple hundred trees in here and we’ve got to check them all,” he said.  “It’s going to be a long day.”
