"It's not picked up," said Tampa resident Yisenia Abrahantes, who is concerned about kids playing in the debris piles lining neighborhood streets. "I have a friend that found a poisonous snake in a pile of stuff and it's just super dangerous."
St. Petersburg says city workers are being shifted into debris removal positions for now. They already cleared 7,000 cubic yards of debris so far. The city says homeowners will start seeing those efforts vamping up this week.
"It's been two weeks and a lot of people need to get on with their lives and decide what they're going to do with their yards," said Vestal adding, "It can be a road hazard so I needs to get done."
Attorney General Pam Bondi is asking sub-contractors from around the country to contact the Florida Department of Transportation if they are willing to offer debris removal at a reasonable price.
