Greensboro Officials Ask for Patience as Tornado Cleanup Continues

(TNS) - With cleanup still underway a week after a tornado cut a destructive path across east Greensboro, city officials used one word Sunday to describe moving forward: patience.

“For some it will take weeks, for some months, for others years” to resume their lives, Acting City Manager David Parrish told reporters Sunday.

And then he paused, with city council members, school and safety officials standing behind him.

“Please,” Parrish added, looking directly into a bank of television cameras, “don’t forget about this area.”

In the past week, intersections have been cleared of trees and webs of power lines from where the April 15 tornado touched down near Barber Park and traveled 16 miles northeast through Guilford County.

But there’s still a lot unknown.
