Leaf Collection Crew Works Through Wet Conditions

WASHINGTON DC (WUSA) --- In the middle of this gray, rainy weather, 9NEWS NOW catches up with four, bright-orange leaf collection trucks.

Piles of leaves can cause slick road conditions and clog up storm drains. Leaf collection crews in the District and Montgomery County, Md., slowly clear the debris on main roads and neighborhood streets.

"Just be cautious and just be patient. And we're trying to get to and collect as many leaves as possible," says Warnique West, Assistant General Foreman of the DC Leaf Collection Program.
