Toppled Tree

Toppled Tree

Strong thunderstorms and tornadoes moved through the region yesterday. Valparaiso was under a tornado watch all day, and gusts grew to 65 mph at times, while nearby communities experienced gusts above 80 mph. However, we were fortunate since some locations in Indiana and Illinois suffered tornadoes sadly resulting in deaths and devastating destruction.

As I noticed reports of numerous downed power lines and upturned trees in our county last night, I thought about the image of a toppled tree that I have included here, which I photographed just last week after a lesser wind storm had done some minor damage at a local park.
