Adel -- Monday's severe storms wreaked havoc on Reed Bingham. Five days later Park Rangers and volunteers are still cleaning up the mess.

The storm uprooted massive trees and snapped others apart as if they were twigs. Debris was thrown over the miles of trails and completely covered the boardwalks.

Cleaning up the large trees and limbs is a slow process and rangers say picking up the rest could take days.  "We have several miles of trails to clear and broken boardwalks as you can see here where the trees come down across and those all have to be cleared and repaired," said Volunteer Rob Ludwig.  

The campgrounds and golf course were also hit hard but have been cleaned up, and are now open.
