Oklahoma City has added a map to its website to show residents how storm debris collection is progressing.

Residents have complained about the slow pace of removing storm debris left behind by the wind and rain storms May 31. Plans are to add a second contractor to ramp up the pace of debris removal, and additional crews are to be at work starting Monday.

The map shows the current contractor, Asplundh Environmental Services, has completed the first pass through neighborhoods from the west side of the city to near Interstate 35. Neighborhoods east of I-35 are waiting for crews to make their first pass.

The map can be viewed at www.okc.gov/tornadoinfo/debrisremovalprogress.pdf
