The city also reports tha 12 of Eau Claire's 21 sewage pump stations were without power from the storm, but used generators until full power was restored.

In Altoona, city crews are picking up damaged limbs and trees, but brush and branches cannot be longer than six feet. Debris is to be placed on boulevards for pickup, or residents can take debris to a disposal site at Lake Road off 10th Street. Pickup will take up to two weeks.
