A strong northeast straight-line wind gust or microburst caused more than a mile and a half of destruction Tuesday night around 8:15 p.m. as it swept through a section of Walker Township ranging from Shady Lane to Catawissa Road in the Lewistown Valley. These trees were only two of many which were toppled during the brief, but damaging storm. These photographs were taken Wednesday morning before crews had an opportunity to start removing the fallen trees.
Toppled trees no match for high winds
