CRAIG SPRINGS, Miss. (WTVA) - Craig Springs looks a little cleaner after the Oktibbeha County Road Department workers were seen cleaning up storm debris and removing trees from the right of way Tuesday morning.
Road Manager Hal Baggett said he counted about 120 trees in Craig Springs that were downed by the April 13 tornado and almost 300 trees downed in other storm-impacted areas.
Ten trucks were in rotation throughout the day and hauled off the debris to the Golden Triangle Regional Landfill.
Baggett said the plan is to clear all the debris from Craig Springs within two to three days and then prepare to remove debris from Hillbrook and other smaller sites.
