Officials: Keys Clean Up Could Take Months

Florida Keys debris cleanup in the wake of Hurricane Irma could last until the end of hurricane season, officials say.

Monroe County officials say 400 members of the Florida National Guard are helping to remove debris.

Statewide, county officials say tree limbs make up the bulk of the storm debris being hauled away.

In Brevard County, officials said Irma produced more debris than Hurricane Matthew in October 2016. Cleanup after Matthew took over a month along Florida's Atlantic coast.

In the Gainesville area, officials said debris pickups could take three months because many crews were picking up more work in the southern part of Florida.
