For many, the storm is over but for others, it’s just the beginning. It’s time to clean up and if you don’ t have any damage, consider yourself lucky.

In Sodus, a huge maple tree on Lake Road uprooted from the ground. Randy and Debbie Cornelius tell News10NBC the tree is at least 200 years old. They are now looking at roof and porch damage.

The City of Rochester didn't escape the damage. The wind was whirling on Amherst Street off Monroe Avenue early Tuesday morning. Trees just couldn't bear the brunt of it.

One of News10NBC’s web producers came home to a pine tree down in her front yard on Morncrest Drive in Gates. Luckily, there is no damage to her home but now she is waiting for a tree service to come out and clean up.

Currently, a lot of tree service companies are taking names and numbers and calling potential customers back when they can get to them.

Officials project the storm damage to be $10 to 20-billion, meaning this could prove to be one of the costliest natural disasters in U.S. history.
