Kenosha cleans up damage from powerful wind

Posted: Updated:

KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) - Kenosha continues to recover from winds that reached up to 100 mph over the weekend, ripping up trees and knocking out power.

Yards are littered with broken trees and branches felled by the straight line winds.

Ann Bailey tells WISN-TV (http://bit.ly/1sdSVeX ) she heard debris flying around, saw trees twisting and thought it was a tornado. Karl Becker says it was raining sideways and blowing down the street. The intense winds took down power lines and street lights.

Two trees about 40 feet tall fell on a PDQ convenience store. Traffic lights were snapped off their concrete poles.

The National Weather Service estimates the blast of powerful wind lasted about 5 minutes before dissipating.
