The Roseville mayor has declared a local emergency following Friday night's storm.

Mayor Dan Roe made the announcement Saturday after an emergency meeting allowing the city to help residents dispose of downed trees, brush and other tree debris needing disposal.

Numerous trees and branches are down in the city and localized flooding occurred Friday, according to the city. Xcel Energy is working to restore power. There is no estimate when power will be restored.

Property owners can move trees and brush to the curb and the city will pick up the debris beginning July 8. The city will begin the final sweep through neighborhoods at that time.

Debris and brush also can be taken to Ramsey County brush sites. Residents can call 651-633-3279, or log onto here to find times and locations.

Homeowners should contact their insurances for coverage to remove trees on personal property, as well as damage to personal property, according to the city. The city will only remove tree debris at the curb.

Tree removal services must be licensed to work in Roseville, the city reported. A list of tree removal services is available here, or residents can call 651-792-7080.

Removing debris from storm sewer grates next to property will help prevent further localized flooding, the city stated. The city also is encouraging residents to check on their neighbors.
