MIDDLEBURG, Fla. - The cleanup continues for homeowners and renters along Black Creek in Middleburg.
Edward and Blanch Heise's yard is just one that is a complete mess even two weeks after Tropical Storm Debby. Fans, chairs, tables, appliances and more litter the front and back.
"I've lost all my power tools. I had three roll around tool boxes and all the tools, and they're not good anymore."
Like most of their neighbors, Edward - with the help of two grandsons - has trashed many of his prized posessions. It's a loss, he says, costs hundreds if not thousands of dollars, and a lot of time.
"It's still going to be a while before I get it all cleared out and cleaned up underneath there, and put stuff back in."
What he's not keeping, is being hauled away by emergency managment crews made possible with help from FEMA funds approved by the federal government this week.
According to Capt. Bernita Bush of the Clay County Fire Rescue Department, crews will be out in full force Tuesday through Thursday of this week, and again next week for a final round of clean up.
Residents are asked to pile debris on the side of the road, outside of any containers they hope to keep, and 10 feet from their regular trash.
