That's some serious wind: Big tree topples in Montlake

There was big excitement in  Seattle’s Montlake neighborhood about an hour ago when an evergreen tree estimated at 50 feet toppled over because of high winds on the 2400 block of East Louisa Street.

There were no injuries, apparently no real damage, and no power lines were affected, according to a local resident, Bridget Guerrero.

“The tree fell exactly between two homes. It’s just snuggled in there,” she said.

The National Weather Service has said the wind will continue until about midnight.
