Wind knocked a tree onto a mini van early Saturday on Southeast Harold Street. No one was hurt but lanes were closed as crews worked to clean up the debris.

Wind also knocked a large fir tree into a home at Southeast 47th Street Saturday morning (pictured). Three people were in the home when the tree crashed onto the roof, puncturing a hole in the home. No one was injured.
