CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

Employees from Gus’ Tree Service worked a 14-hour day Monday after severe storms passed through the Charlotte metro area Sunday evening.

Gus Holevas, the owner of the business, said his company started getting calls for tree removal right after the strong storms passed through the area. Holevas said the rough weather was powerful enough to uproot several large and healthy trees.

Holevas said that the damage could have been even worse if some of the big trees had more leaves.

He offered some words of advice for homeowners in the area.

“Check out the trees, prune the trees, and check the trees all the time because lots of the trees here in North Carolina struggle with the big storms we have all these years,” said Holevas.

The owner of the business said thankfully he hadn’t heard of anyone getting hurt by falling trees or limbs.

Holevas said it will be a busy week for him and his employees.

    A state regulator on Friday rejected Duke Energy’s request to raise customers rates in Charlotte, ordering it instead to cut those rates. The North Carolina Utilities Commission's order amounts to a rare denial for the Charlotte-based utility, which had sought its first rate hike since 2013 for central and western North Carolina.
