The Eugene Public Works Department says it may take weeks to recover from extensive damage caused by last week's ice storm, and this weekend's heavy rain isn't helping. Carrie Peterson is a Spokeswoman for the Public Works Department. She says the heavy rain is over-saturating the soil and causing already weakened trees to uproot entirely.

Petterson: "So the areas we once had cleared for the roadways and bike paths are now having trees fall on them again."
