BROOKLYN - After a tornado whipped through Brooklyn unexpectedly on Thursday, local business owners say they?re now picking up overtime to pick up after the storm.

Landscapers, auto body mechanics, tree removal service workers and other contractors say they?ve been inundated with work, undoing the damage from fallen trees and branches.

Some workers say that picking up after a storm is often more expensive because it requires damage assessment.
