Southern Colorado | Always Watching Out For You

The snow and wind are gone, but a new danger lurks after the blizzard

COLORADO SPRINGS – In the wake of Wednesday’s blizzard, downed branches and debris littered streets and yards across El Paso County.

“Today and tomorrow and throughout the weekend is a good time to look up in the canopy and see what you can see,” said Mike Spencer with Spencer’s Nursey.

Even though some branches may still be in the tree, they could be stressed and it is just a matter of time before they come down.

“If they’re weakened now, the next windstorm or snowstorm will probably bring those down,” Spencer said. “You can’t want them on your car, your house or your neighbor’s house.”

If see branches that need to be taken down, call the professionals if you can’t reach it yourself.
