Storm Uproots, Topples Tree

EUGENE, Ore. — Utility crews were on standby Monday night in preparation for potential outages and downed trees from a high wind advisory in the Willamette Valley.

The storm was already showing its strength at a home in the 2500 block of McMillan Street in South Eugene.

Strong winds uprooted and toppled a tree in a homeowner’s yard.

He says he heard a creaking noise, thought it was just a branch, looked outside and realized it was the entire tree.

It’s a sight not uncommon for some Southeast Eugene residents.

KEZI 9 News Reporter Sarah Hurwitz spoke with a man who’s tree came down in the last wind storm and the Eugene Water and Electric Board on their preparations for the storm.
