ST. JOSEPH, Mich. (AP) - Crews at a cemetery and park along the St. Joseph River have been cleaning up dozens of trees and limbs damaged in a severe storm.

The Herald-Palladium reports (https://bit.ly/1qEI39i ) 40 trees were partially damaged or completely uprooted in the 35-acre Riverview Cemetery, and another 40 trees were damaged in the 107-acre Riverview Park.

The cemetery is the oldest in St. Joseph.

Buildings and grounds supervisor Willie Fryer says that, fortunately, the cemetery’s headstones and markers escaped damage in Tuesday’s storm, which packed 60-mile-per-hour winds.
