Wind sparks downed power lines
SOUTH BEND, Ind. – Trees stood no chance on Wednesday to the strong Michiana winds. Branches fell across the area which even left some without power.
On Blaine Avenue in South Bend a huge tree branch covered the width of the road, which left multiple cars turning around. For the people who heard it nearby they said they were surprised when they looked outside.
“It sounded like it was thunder, but it really wasn’t, it was a tree,” said Lori Drayton.
On Eisenhower Avenue, a branch actually caught fire after it fell on a line in between a row of homes.
