RALEIGH, NC (AP) — Repairs to property damaged by April’s
storms are going slower than expected in Raleigh, with less than a
third of the 1,000 damaged commercial buildings and homes back in
service.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Wednesday that Mayor
Charles Meeker said the amount of unrepaired damage totals $115
million.

Raleigh City Council has enacted new measures to help. The
council on Tuesday approved plans for a community fund-raiser,
authorized a program to remove trees from streams on private
property, and reallocated some $30,000 to help with tornado relief.

The July 30 downtown festival will raise money for nonprofit
organizations that help tornado victims.

The tree removal program will cost about $785,000 and begin in
early fall.
