CUMBERLAND, Md. (AP) — The Department of Natural Resources says all roads through state forests in western Maryland have been cleared of debris from last week’s violent storms.

Western Regional Forester Robert Webster told the Cumberland Times-News on Thursday that trees and branches have been removed from roads through the Green Ridge, Savage, and Potomac-Garrett state forests.

Webster says workers are now focusing on clearing hiking and biking trails through the woods.

He says campers at several campsites in the Green Ridge forest were trapped by impassable roads after the storms June 29. But Webster says those people were able to get out the next day.
