A news release from a town official says over the next few months, several insurance agencies will assist the village with the process of removing debris and rebuilding. Village officials also are reaching out to charitable organizations to help those without insurance or who were under-insured.

Officials say the May 11, EF3 tornado severely damaged 120 trees on public property that will need to be cut down. The town is seeking out organizations that can help private homeowners remove their damaged trees at no cost.

Beaver Crossing Administrator Shannon Chesnut says the village office will operate out of the town’s fire hall until the Village Hall can be restored.
