Always wear protective gear and keep others at a safe distance. Leaning
trees and those which have fallen on roofs or power lines can be 
especially dangerous. If you are not in good health or unsure about 
what you are doing, have someone with tree cutting experience do the 
job. Never cut trees without a partner.

trees and/or power lines, collapse damaged structures, or cause 
flying debris.

Be alert for potential flooding from rising rivers and streams which 
may have yet to crest. Remain informed of the latest river forecasts 
and heed any flood watches and warnings.
