(Ogden-AP) -- The city of Ogden is still cleaning up after last week's wind storm.

The storm ripped the roof off Ogden's Intermodal Hub and downed trees and power lines. Ogden's facilities manager says a lot of little things were damaged, like the cornices torn off of the public safety building.

Hundreds of residents dropped off broken branches over the weekend at Ogden's green waste site. And though the dollar tallies are still rolling in, insurance agents say they were busy yesterday fielding calls from homeowners with mangled roofs and blown-out windows.

Wind gusts Friday were reported up to 83 miles an hour in some parts. The wind caused accidents on Interstate-15, and snapped power lines, leaving up to 30-thousand Utah Power customers without electricity.
