Several branches and part of the trunk of a willow tree in the 4500 block of Lora Street came crashing down because of the wind.
The wind took a trampoline, shingles and gutters, and sheet metal into the streets. Garbage cans rolled around and over on Northwestern Avenue by Carlise St., the road blockades at a construction site were mangled.
A tree fell near some electrical wires that are now sparking in an alley near the 1600 block of Albert St. at 1:09 p.m. Officials with the Racine Fire Department are responding.
A high wind warning remains in effect until 8 p.m., according to the National Weather Service.
