Watch out below. Capitol Hill’s thickening spring canopy is shedding some trunks and branches this evening as wind gusts top out in the mid-40s. No accounts of power outages yet and damage has so far been limited to a few unfortunate cars. Thanks to everybody for the pictures and notes from the streets tonight — you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or text/call (206) 399-5959 with breaking news.
- 4:30 PM – . Tree down on car
This young lady was the unlucky recipient of a tree falling on her car. she was humorous about the whole affair quipping she might get a free mirrior for the car, since it was cracked anyhow… gotta love capitol hill spirit!
Happened around 4:30 pm Friday at the corner of Harvard Ave E and E Olive – right as you’d hang a left on Harvard coming up Olive in the east/right hand lane.
