Yards are littered with broken trees and branches felled by the straight line winds.
Ann Bailey tells WISN-TV she heard debris flying around, saw trees twisting and thought it was a tornado. Karl Becker says it was raining sideways and blowing down the street. The intense winds took down power lines and street lights.
Two trees about 40 feet tall fell on a PDQ convenience store. Traffic lights were snapped off their concrete poles.
The National Weather Service estimates the blast of powerful wind lasted about 5 minutes before dissipating.
