EDMONTON -- There were several reports of strong winds downing trees throughout Edmonton on Tuesday.
One twitter user posted photos of a tree taking down a fence and falling into a back alley.
Another posted a doorcam video showing a neighbour’s tree appearing to fall between a car and house.
CTV News Edmonton’s Josh Classen said that wind gusts were between 40 to 56 km/h Tuesday and that it is unusual for trees to fall in such wind speeds.
