The powerful storms that swept through the Twin Cities metro over the Summer Solstice weekend uprooted thousands of trees and cut power to thousands more. The storms were also detrimental to local wildlife.
The soaking rains and violent winds swept countless baby songbirds from their nests, leaving them defenseless on the soggy ground below.
Luckily, compassionate Minnesotans responded to their rescue, delivering hundreds of them to the capable, hard working staff and volunteers at the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Minnesota in Roseville (WRC).

Storm damage — consumer alert

The recent storm blew down some trees, and it also attracted people trying to make a quick buck at the homeowner’s expense.
If your home or property was damaged, you may get salespeople knocking at your door promising to make repairs. Although most businesses are legitimate, there are some who may try to take advantage of you. They’ll use high pressure or intimidating tactics to get you to buy their products or services.

Enjoy the parks but take your purse and lock your car

Roseville Police remind you to plan carefully before visiting a park, both locally and while traveling. Do not leave valuables in your  vehicle. Thieves know that visitors often leave purses, cell phones, laptops, GPS devices and other valuables in their vehicles while hiking or picnicking, so vehicles in parking lots become easy targets. Consider wearing a backpack or fanny pack to carry  your valuables.  If you don’t want to carry them, leave them at home. Do not put something in your trunk or under your seat while at a park. Thieves may be watching and note what you are doing.
