Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- The overnight storm hit Fergus Falls hard, bringing strong winds, hail, and lots of rain, and leaving a path of destruction.

Many trees and large limbs are down and lining the streets all over town.

City crews say they were surprised by the mess when they woke up, and headed out bright and early trying to clean it up.

They cut back branches and hauled them away in truck loads to the landfill.

Crews tell us this season's first large storm is one of the worst they've seen.

Haley Stich- Fergus Falls Parks and Rec.: "The wind was goin pretty good and lightning was coming in. I would say, after the storm stopped a bunch of the guys came in about 2 or 3 in the morning and got started right away to pick it up."

Cleanup is expected to take several days.
