One of the many condemned buildings after a Sunday afternoon storm in La Crosse? The city's Green Island Ice Arena near Gundersen Lutheran. The building was damaged in the storm, has been condemned and now is shut down, the city's parks department says, until further notice. Many other homes and businesses have been condemned and emergency workers spent much of Monday refusing to let people in to retrieve their belongings from those places that had been severely damaged by the storm. Besides canceling all the indoor activities at Green Island, the parks department has also relocated all outdoor activities as well.
Don't mix your trees with your roofing shingles. Or your wall siding, or gutters, or windows.... or any other part of your house that came loose during Sunday's storm in La Crosse. Although the city is collecting chunks of fallen trees from boulevards, it is warning against mixing construction junk with the trees, otherwise those trying to clean up, the city says, will have to take the whole mess to the dump themselves.
The City of La Crosse is NOT planning a construction or building material debris clean up at this time. Residents must contact waste haulers for a dumpster or haul material to the La Crosse County Solid Waste Department located at 6502 State Road 16, La Crosse, WI.

Please refer to the 2011 Recycler for guidelines or contact the City of La Crosse Recycling office at 608-789-7508 or Harter’s Quick clean up at 608-782-2082. If construction, building, or other foreign material is found to be in with tree debris, the City of La Crosse will not pick it up and you will have to haul it all to the Solid Waste Department.
Service groups are lining up to help those in need after a severe storm rattled La Crosse yesterday afternoon. The Red Cross is coordinating efforts with local first responders to get people back in their homes to collect personal items. The organization is also spending the day doing mobile feeding in the areas affected by the apparent tornado and helping out police and fire personnel and has had an emergency shelter at Central high set up since yesterday. The Salvation Army is helping distribute supplies at its downtown office and had set up a canteen for first responders starting last night. The YMCA in La Crosse today says it has its doors open for anyone in area. The Y says it will provide soap, towels, a warm shower, or just a place to relax for those affected by yesterday's storms.
