Santa Rosa Co residents grateful for debris pick/up

SANTA ROSA COUNTY  --  SANTA ROSA COUNTY -- Santa Rosa County started picking up debris left curbside by people affected by the flooding last week.

The county's public works department was busy along Rancho Villa Drive in Gulf Breeze Friday.

Santa Rosa Public Works brought out the heavy equipment to pick up debris piles throughout the county.

The sight of an excavator and dump trucks picking up mounds of debris, and hauling it off, is another step closer to normalcy for people living on Ranchette Square in Gulf Breeze.

"I have no more water in my house, I have no more carpet.  It's a little damp in there and I'm so happy they're picking up the debris" said Betty Wanberg, Flood Victim.

Betty Wanberg is like many of her neighbors after the storm.
Her home was left damaged after the flood.
She's lost thousands of dollars worth of stuff, some of it, irreplaceable.

"I just hope I haven't lost my nice Steinway piano, that's my pride and joy" said Wanberg.

Betty says her husband got the piano for her, before he died.
She'd hate to add it to the long list of other cherished items, tossed into a mound of debris.

On the bright side, Betty says, seeing Ranchette Square free of debris is refreshing.
