High winds throughout the day brought down a large portion of a multi-trunk tree on the 200 block of E. Highland Avenue. Winds in Philadelphia were especially high, reaching a peak gust of 35.7 mph according to the  U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. That speed is considered “near gale force.”

Let us know if any other trees are down in the area.
