Here are a few pictures from a giant (ficus?) tree that was knocked over on upper State Street and Ontare - right in front of the Hydroponics shop and the Wash n' Go. The Police officer I talked to said it was felled by 60-80MPH winds/gusts. What was remarkable about it was that the whole thing was just snapped clean off.. the trunk hanging 6 feet above an otherwise healthy-looking stump. Someone please explain this year's weather to me.
Right now, west-bound traffic is blocked on State. I'm guessing they'll have it chopped up by morning.
