SHENANDOAH NATIONAL PARK, Va -- A large portion of trees surrounding Skyline Drive are vulnerable to falling over as an effect of Superstorm Sandy.
Only 75 miles of Skyline Drive are open to the public and crews are still working on the northern portion of the road to remove snow and ice.
Rangers told a WHSV reporter that, surprisingly, not many trees came down because of the storm, but many could be damaged and come down at any time.
“The people that have been on the drive clearing it out probably have some areas that they've tagged to watch over the next week if there are higher winds. Right now, it's just watch out above you,” said Lori Mooney, a Shenandoah National Park Ranger.
Because of the unpredictable nature of a damaged tree, the only way you can prepare is to watch for trees swaying in the wind.
