Tree Falls on Shoreway, and Other Wind Damage




The winds that rolled through Cleveland last night and early this morning did plenty of damage: Exhibit A: This tree that fell on the shoreway, causing quite the backup, we hear. NewsNet5 has a gallery of some other damage, from a roof ripped off an apartment complex in Lakewood to the ever-scary tree-falls-on-house pics. Estimates have nearly 35,000 without power

While we clean up and deal with power outages and delays, let's send thoughts and prayers down south where they're dealing with a lot more than some property damage; the death toll from tornadoes in Alabama and five other states is at 200+ and climbing.
