ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla. - Seminole County officials said that a plan to remove an estimated one million cubic yards of hurricane debris should be completed by Tuesday afternoon.
Residents, businesses owners and crews throughout the county spent Tuesday continuing to clean up the mess Hurricane Irma made.
Benjamin Hoff said he was hired by a condominium association to clear a complex parking lot on Northlake Boulevard in Altamonte Springs.

"I will have all of these trees removed this afternoon," he said. "We'll make it through it."
One tree crushed two cars parked in the lot as it fell. Four other vehicles were also damaged.
Resident Sagar Saoji said he hasn't seen trees damage vehicles at the complex since Hurricane Charley hit more than 13 years ago.

"It's crazy," he said. "Three (downed) trees in just this one portion of the neighborhood is insane."
Saoji said cleanup efforts after Charley lasted a month.
Elsewhere in the county, large trees fell near homes, and one even blocked Longwood Markham Road. It's unclear when it will be removed.
